What's cookin' - Balsamic Shrimp Spinach Salad

This was a super delicious salad.  Maybe it was extra good because I have been trouble eating salads since my daughter was born.  My oral allergy syndrome symptoms make it hard for me to eat raw fruits and vegetables without some discomfort.  I recently realized that raw spinach doesn't bother me that much, so I am eating salads with limited toppings again!

Balsamic Shrimp Spinach Salad
This is a small serving -- easily double or triple for larger serving.

2 cups spinach
1 cup cooled cooked shrimp, cut into small pieces
Grated Parmesan cheese, or crumbled feta cheese or both

Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

1. Mix salad ingredients together.
2. Mix all vinaigrette ingredients together. Whisk or shake in bottle.
3. Pour vinaigrette over salad.

Hint: Top with bacon or homemade croutons!

I have never combined shrimp and spinach before but it sounds lovely - especially with the balsamic dressing. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
