Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Coarsely shredding the spinach makes it easier to eat. Roll up large handfuls of leaves, and slice with a sharp knife shortly before serving (if cut too soon, the edges will darken from being cutting with a knife).
  • Keep this salad fresh by tossing and serving half the salad at a time.
