I had a ball making this salad. However, I changed things up just a bit to make it a bit more Weight Watcher friendly. First, I reduced the amount of olive oil from cup to cup and used garlic-infused olive oil for more flavor. I substituted golden Balsamic vinegar for the red wine vinegar which I found mild and slightly sweet. I used one 5-oz. box of washed organic baby spinach and one 1-pound box of grape tomatoes, halved. I added salt to the potato cooking water and left it totally out of the dressing. I used garlic pepper instead of straight black pepper, but I really like garlic! Everyone who tasted the salad really loved it, too, and it looks simply lovely on the plate.

I reduced the oil from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup. I don't know why the fractions didn't print out in my last comment!

What can I use besides Spinach

I used fresh basil leaves instead and it was really yummy

You can substitute with baby salad greens, kale, or even broccoli cuts.
