This is a quick and easy salad that tastes delicious. I was shocked when my husband said "If all spinach tasted this good I would eat it everyday". He's a bit of a smart alec (and let's just say, not the biggest fan of whole foods), so I was quite surprised that he liked this salad so much. I took this recipe from Dr. Barnard's "Cancer Survivor Guide" which can be found here.
