Yummy Healthy Spinach Salad

??????????????

 

This recipe was shared on Facebook with no title, so I gave it one.  Oh goodness.  Here is a quote from the original post: “This SPINACH-based salad will boost the thyroid gland’s output of metabolism-reviving hormones!” 
I also added grilled chicken to this.  Makes a great main dish salad that way.
