Spinach salad is a great way to increase your family's fruit and vegetable consumption—the challenge is getting your children (or picky eaters) to enjoy it. We've found that a simple, slightly sweet dressing like our Raspberry Vinaigrette, tossed with mild Boston lettuce or a baby spinach salad, with fruit or your family's favorite vegetables, can convince most everyone to take a bite.
