This salad pairs the sweetness of grapes with tart, creamy goat cheese. It makes a delicious starter for a casual dinner party, or a great take-to-work lunch. Just pack the dressing separately and toss it right before eating so the spinach doesn't wilt. Make the salad heartier by topping it with grilled chicken, shrimp, or salmon. Roasted, seasoned chickpeas would also be tasty. When cherries are in season, swap pitted cherries for grapes. And if you like a leafy green with more bite, try peppery arugula instead of more mild spinach.
