    this a great recipe and very adaptable. I didn't have all the fruit on hand, so I used strawberries and grapes instead. I also subbed pecans since I was out of walnuts and used turkey bacon to reduce the fat. Still a great salad - the dressing is the key. So good and so much better than the wilted spinach I grew up with that was full of grease!

    I made this salad last night & it was delicious. I made a few subs/additions. I subbed strawberries for the mango, pecans for the walnuts, and added chopped, roasted chicken breast. I also chopped the apple, I used a Pink Lady, and added it to the vinaigrette as it reduced. I poured the warm dressing and apples over the spinach to wilt the greens, then topped with the strawberries, chicken, and pecans. Fabulous!
