This quick and easy spinach salad with fruit, veggie, and carb toppings is simple enough so that you could make it any weeknight, but it has a touch of elegance which makes it suitable for an opening course of a fancier dinner.

This salad goes well with any dressing that features sesame, ginger, or peanut. It also goes well with a simple balasmic dressing, fruit-flavored vinaigrette, or sweet-and-sour dressing.

  3. In each bowl, closer to the middle of the bowl, make a ring of avocado slices.

  5. In each bowl, place a small handful of chow mein noodles mostly in the middle of the salad.
