I ate this for a late afternoon Lunch and thought it was very good.
I love any kind of Caprese Salad.
Later on when my husband got home and was very hungry this is what I fed him until dinner was done.
My Husband loved this and I did not expect him to like it.
This was made in early September while there were a few tomatoes on the vine & fresh basil in the garden, I plant different types of basil every year and love it even the neighbors come to smell my basil walking away with it stuck in their noses. one of these days I will put up a pic of my garden that people tell me is just sweet and lovely. To me it is just my Garden.

I've always like caprese salad, but had never thought to add spinach. Wow! It's so good. Next time I make this, I may add some grilled chicken too. This will be great at your next cookout!

We used a 4 oz. can of sliced black olives and it was just enough. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
