A fellow parent on my daughters' softball team brought this salad to a team picnic - the girls, all in their mid-teens, loved it. If I take it somewhere I make it ahead by mixing the dressing ingredients in a jar, and keeping the noodles separate in a plastic bag, which allows me to toss all the ingredients right before serving and keeps the salad from getting soggy.

- 1 (12 -16 ounce) package spinach
- 8 scallions, thinly sliced
