Default Spinach Salad

Fresh baby spinach leaves
Grape tomatoes. halved
Feta cheese crumbles
Olive oil infused with a cut garlic clove
salt

I cut a garlic clove in half and let it set in some olive oil overnight. Remove the garlic before using the oil and save for some other dish. I went to a cooking class in a 15th century village just outside Rome last year and they do it this way.
I first coat the spinach with just enough olive oil to make sure all leaves are coated , then add tomatoes and stir to coat then sprinkle with feta and salt to taste. It's so easy and nutritious and tasty.

Please reconsider the way you are infusing your oil with garlic. By leaving it at room temperature you are risking botulism poisoning. It must be refridgerated. More info here.

Thank you I never thought about food poisoning from letting it set out. The cooking class did leave it on the counter while we prepared the rest of the meal, but of course, that was not overnight.
