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.
