Recipe Tips:

If you can get them, you'll experience maximum taste and nutrition if you use organic ingredients for this salad recipe.

Low fat Creamy Cauliflower Dressing is perfect with Spinach Salad. Have as much as you like - it's mostly cauliflower and lemon juice, although you'd never know from tasting it!

Light and perky, Fresh Dill Sauce is also lovely with spinach salad.

Healthy Holidays: Enjoy spinach salad with a light & healthy, but festive & bountiful meal of barley bean vegetable soup, toasted French bread with low fat spicy bean dip, a relish tray, assorted herbal teas, and poached pears for dessert.
