Walnut & Spinach Brain Boosting Salad

Walnut & Spinach Brain Boosting Salad

My wife was attending a dinner for a course she was facilitating on improving the brain. She needed to bring a salad that contained some of the foods they had been learning about that have a massive impact on brain function. Walnuts and spinach were two of the beneficial foods so I whipped up this salad. It is delicious!
