Okay everyone. This salad is absolute deliciousness!

I just got done eating it earlier today, and I'm already craving it again.

It's really one of the best ways to use those gigantic bags of spinach from the grocery store. The bags that never seem to get used at my house before they go bad. I always have good intentions though when I buy them.

But now I don't have any excuse because this salad will always be in the back of my mind.

The sauce is what really makes this salad perfect. It's a combo of mostly mayo, lemon zest and juice and garlic along with a couple other ingredients and it's seriously mouthwatering!

Spinach adds all the good nutrients for you, the potatoes add texture and the parmesan adds that saltiness the salad needs. All together with the sauce, perfection!

I can't even begin to tell you though, you HAVE to try it for yourself! People who don't like spinach would love this salad!

I'd also love to give this salad a try with fresh, chopped kale instead of spinach, grilled chicken or roasted chickpeas instead of potatoes and maybe shredded parmesan and romano instead of shaved parmesan.

We'd serve this with some grilled steak or chicken when it's still nice outside or baked or fried chicken and fish in the winter. It's also good at lunchtime by itself or served alongside a sandwich or bowl of soup!
