Fresh from the garden spinach salad

This salad was inspired by a recipe I found on the label of the grill planks I got from Fire and Flavor. I changed it a little as the recipe called for arugula, which I didn't have on hand. I substituted with some mixed greens and some fresh spinach from our garden.

1 cup mixed greens
1 cup spinach leaves
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
Place in large bowl.

In smaller bowl, add:
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. chopped garlic
2 tbsp. lemon juice
Whisk together, then pour into large bowl with vegetables. Toss to coat. In the recipe that was on that grilling plank label, there was a lovely photo. They suggested serving it over steaks.



Spinach is the first thing in our garden that was ready for picking.
