SPINACH + BEANS + OLIVE + TOMATO SALAD

It doesn’t have to take a lot of work to put together a delicious and beautiful salad to start off your meal with!

This is a salad that my co-worker ordered for me one day when we got our lunch delivered.   When I make or order a salad, I rarely go for one where the base is spinach– I don’t know why, I think maybe because I prefer my spinach cooked.  But this dish seemed so simply yet filling that I decided to write down what was in it so I could remake it!  Feel free to change the type of greens or mix and match different beans and use a variety of olives.  Below is the recipe, I did not add any quantities- just use as much or as little as you like of each ingredient.

Hope you enjoy!

Spinach + Beans + Olive + Tomato Salad

This recipe is based off the spinach salad from Julie’s Pizzeria

– Baby spinach, torn into bite sized pieces (I use the organic packs from Trader Joe’s)
– Mini heirloom tomatoes, sliced into quarters (you can use any type of tomato you have on hand, I like how colorful these guys are)
– Garbanzo beans, drained (I used the canned version, you can make them from scratch)
– Kidney beans, drained
– Black olives, drained and roughly chopped
– Pepperchinis (optional, leave out if you aren’t a fan of a little heat)
– Italian dressing or oil and vinegar

Toss everything together…that’s basically it!  Serve with dressing on the side or a light drizzle on top.
