Substitute fresh arugula for the spinach if you prefer its spicy bite. For a checkerboard effect, you can use both white and wheat breads. If you want to serve only the salad, just omit the bread, spinach, and 1/3 cup mayonnaise.

1 tablespoon minced sweet onion
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
12 very thin white or wheat sandwich bread slices, lightly toasted
1 cup firmly packed fresh spinach
