ULTIMATE SPINACH SALAD
I love this spinach salad because it's super healthy thanks to all the leafy greens and full of different textures and flavors. You can add walnuts, feta and bacon for saltiness and dried cranberries to give it sweetness or just keep it plain with mostly spinach, apple slices and your choice of dressing. I like to mix Italian and ranch dressing most of the time, or when I'm being really good I just add a little balsamic vinegar. Enjoy!
