Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • The spinach and oil/vinegar mixture can be prepared ahead and stored separately in the refrigerator.
  • To keep the apple from getting brown, cut the apple and add to the oil/vinegar mixture then assemble the salad just before serving. The vinegar in the dressing keeps the apple from browning.
  • For a complete meal, add slices of baked or grilled chicken breast and serve with a slice of whole wheat bread and a glass of skim milk.
