      This sounds tasty. When I first tried spinach salad with fruit, it was like a great experience. I was always skeptical of fruit mixing with vegetables and meat but that proved me wrong.

      Pauline, Cookaholic, and Carol......thank you so much on the feed back, Pauline I do agree with you spinach is versatile it can be prepared in so many ways, Cookaholic the nutmeg adds another element of flavor that pairs well with the spinach...Carol I think its good to use different flavors when your cooking that way it helps to know what different things you and your family likes and every now and then we need a change in what were eating and cooking
