Simple Spinach Salad

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

Toss a few things in a bowl and jazz up a simple supper. When I brought this to the table, my kids said, "What? A gourmet meal?" It's so easy to please some people!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Snip spinach and lettuce leaves.
  2. Snip olives.
  3. Cut off a hunk of cheese, and cut into crumbles.
  4. Add olives and cheese to lettuce in a large serving bowl.
  5. Toss lightly then drizzle favorite dressing or let each diner add at the table.
  6. Options: use Swiss chard instead of spinach. Try Romaine, red leaf or other specialty lettuces.
  7. Other olives could be substituted for the Kalamata (but not recommended---this was SO good with the Kalamata).

Very nice salad. I made this as the base to another spinach salad, and really enjoyed it. Simple and easy.

VERY good! I made this up to go with our chicken dish last night and had leftovers. So for lunch I added some cubed chicken, added grape tomatoes, and used a Balsamic Vinegerette. YUM!
