This is a very nice main dish salad. I mixed everything together, except the spinach and tossed that with the shrimp, beans, etc just prior to serving. I did use white wine balsamic vinegar instead of the apple cider vinegar, and added a bit more. I like the sweet tang the balsamic vinegar gives the veggies. The recipe came together quickly and easily. This will be very good when the heat of summer hits us.
