Spinach Salad

I made this spinach salad the other night to pair with my dinner. I wanted to make a light but delicious salad that was full of flavor and crunchy goodness.

When I was adding the final touches to my spinach salad I decided something was missing, I had a box of Olivia’s Croutons® and I immediately  realized they were the perfect topping for my masterpiece

I used the Olivia’s Croutons® garlic flavor, it made my salad crunchy and added the flair I was looking for. It was my fist time trying Olivia’s gluten free croutons and I wasn’t disappointed, it actually made my salad incredible and we all enjoyed my yummy salad.
