This salad is very refreshing and versatile. It is perfect for those warm summer days. It is very light, but it may be moistened with some extra virgin olive oil or topped with cheese (feta would go nicely). I served it with toasted italian bread in a bruschetta like-way. Enjoy!

Outstanding!! I used fresh spinach, sauted with a couple of minced garlic cloves in a couple of tbls of olive oil. Then followed the recipe. It was a perfect light dinner! Thank you Chef-girl-OV!!
