Mediterranean fresh salad
If you are eating this salad by itself (not as a side to pasta) feel free to add grilled chicken, steak, tofu, cheese or tuna! It’s a great appetizer salad too if you want to add pulled fish.

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

Usually no one likes soggy salad, but with spinach the dressing will just “cook” the spinach. Add everything to your pasta and have a new pasta for tomorrows lunch!
