This salad can be varied by substituting your family's favorite greens for the spinach. If you're really pressed for time, a bottled spinach dressing should work nicely besides.—Elizabeth Montgomery, Allston, MA

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons cider or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
