Spinach-Apple-Walnut Salad

I made this yummy spinach salad last night to go
 with our dinner of grilled lamb. It was such a hit 
that I couldn't wait to have it again for lunch 
 today. The recipe serves 8, but you
can easily make as much as you want.
 It's uncomplicated  and takes just minutes 
to assemble. The lemon vinaigrette is the 
perfect fresh dressing to go with it. Shake
the ingredients together in a jar ahead 
to let the garlic infuse the oil with flavor. 
Do that first. 
Grab a handful of pre-washed fresh spinach per
 serving. Toss in some thinly sliced red Delicious 
apple, and red onion. Sprinkle generously with
 chopped walnuts (I had pecans). Pour dressing
 over and toss. Grind a little fresh pepper 
over the top to taste. Delish!
Optional: crumble a little blue cheese on top.
