    This was a nice change for a spinach salad. I did make a change by adding some chopped romaine in at the end, since I was trying to "stretch" out the quantity. I used less oil, too. The lime zest is a nice addition. Next time I'd like to add something to give it a bit of sweetness, maybe some raisins or cranberries. Thanks Katie, for posting.

    Wow! I loved this! I changed the amounts of a few things a little bit but didn't add or subtract anything totally. I was tempted to skip the pine nuts because I'm not a big fan of nuts in savory dishes but I really like what they added to this dish (though I didn't use the full 3 Tbsp). I used the variety of tomatoes that aren't packed in oil so softened them up a little by adding them to the skillet before the spinach. I used a "regular" lime instead of key lime, only 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp cayenne, and just 2 Tbsp oil in the dressing. The seasoning was perfect for my taste as I made it. Thanks so much for creating this excellent recipe! :)
