Spinach Salad with Lemon & Pepper Dressing

It's the time of year when salads just sound good.  Here is another one my family likes.

1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp Lemon Pepper Seasoning
2 packages (6 oz each) baby spinach leaves
1 cup sliced mushrooms
Toppings such as crumbled bacon, chopped hard-cooked eggs, sliced red onions, sliced strawberries, orange segments, sliced avocado, or grilled chicken.  (We like all of them.)

Mix olive oil, vinegar, sugar and seasoning in small bowl with wire whisk until well blended.

Toss spinach and mushrooms in large bowl.  Top with desired toppings.  Serve with dressing.

Tip:  If I top this with grilled chicken, I marinate one chicken breast in 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp  Lemon Pepper Seasoning for 30 minutes before grilling it in the grill pan.
