I can't wait to try this from the Sun-Sentinel, Feb. 28, 2008. The note above the recipe says that "This is a play on the original spinach salad; it can be served as a starter or offered alongside roasted chicken, pork or duck. The addition of pineapple adds sweetness and body. Baby arugula leaves would work well instead of spinach."
