Spinach Walnut & Feta Salad

Spinach Walnut & Feta Salad

So you are planning to include more veggies in your diet, why not include more spinach since it is one of those versatile greens that you can eat raw or cooked?  Spinach is awesome added to stir fries, omelettes, smoothies or tossed in a fresh salad. If you are curious how spinach compares nutritionally to kale, romaine and arugula see my past post, Salad Showdown: Comping the Nutrition.

Ingredients:

4 cups spinach, washed
