This salad was so tasty. Not too sweet and not too tart. I used pineapple tidbits instead of the chuncks and it worked well. When I make this again, I'm going to use a little romaine lettuce with the spinach to see how that works. I used my salad spinner to get as much liquid as I could and it kept the salad fresh for an extra day for leftovers.
