Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Walnuts

This salad is really more a method than a recipe. I made this with dinner the first time I fed the boy's parents, and his mom loves it, so I make it frequently when they're coming over for dinner. It's really quick and easy to put together, and has a nice balance of flavors. It goes fine with a little extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, but if that's not your thing, try it with the dressing of your choice.

Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Walnuts
Triple washed baby spinach
Romaine lettuce hearts
English cucumber, or small pickling cucumber
Toasted Walnuts

Toss together baby spinach and romaine. Use about twice as much baby spinach as romaine.
Slice cucumbers and strawberries and add to the salad
Chop and toast walnuts, and sprinkle over the top.
