Standard salads get so boring, there are just so many variations of salads you can do that don't involve lettuce, tomato and cucumber. Packed with beans, rice and a bed of spinach this salad is packed with nutrients and tastes so good especially topped with feta cheese! If you leave the feta off this is also vegan as well as gluten free.
