Looking for the perfect dish for those outdoor summer dinners? Well, look no further. This baby spinach and nectarine salad is both refreshing and filling. By using baby spinach instead of ‘ol lettuce leaves you’ll get an extra dose of vitamin A and K (essential for healthy reproductive organs and blood and bone health).
And when those juicy nectarines are out of season? Simply substitute with grapefruit segments.
