Pineapple Spinach Salad

by Laura

Today is a salad day. Summer is for salads and do I have a good one for you. This pineapple spinach salad works great as a side or main dish salad. I think you could add some shrimp or chicken in there to make it more hearty. I have served it as a side for dinner, but also enjoyed it just for my lunch.

This is also so simple to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.  You need spinach, feta and fresh pineapple. It also includes some pecans cook in just a few minutes with butter and sugar resulting in the perfectly sugared pecans to add into the salad. Then it all gets dressed with a simple and light vinaigrette.  It’s just enough to coat this pineapple spinach salad with and give it the perfect flavor to go along with all of the other ingredients.
