Corn and Red Potato Spinach Salad

Russ Myers


While the potatoes and corn benefit from marinating in the vinaigrette, the spinach can wilt. So to ensure the spinach stays fresh and crisp, bring it in a separate container and toss just before serving — or simply serve the potato and corn salad on top of the spinach.
