Spinach and Tomato Salad

This refreshing salad is perfect for serving with bistro-style chicken or steak sandwiches. It's also a welcome guest at any backyard barbeque.
  • 1-2 large tomatoes, depending on your tastes
  • 3 c. torn spinach leaves
  • 3 T. olive oil
  • 3 T. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 T. minced basil
  • 1 T. minced oregano

Cut tomatoes into bite-sized chunks. Combine with the spinach leaves in a large serving bowl. Set aside.
