Directions

In a medium saucepan, cover eggs with water and put the lid on. Heat the water until it boils, then turn off burner and steam eggs (with lid on) for 10 minutes. Drain water, run eggs under cold water. Let sit for 5 minutes. Peel eggs and slice in half.

In a medium saucepan, over high heat, steam potatoes in steamer pan for 20-30 minutes. (Until potatoes can be pierced with a knife). Remove from heat, but leave lid on to keep warm.

In a small wok, heat 1 cup of water until it boils. Add beans and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Beans will turn bright green. Pour any water off and set aside.

Next, in a large salad bowl, toss greens with lemon vinaigrette. On a larger platter, lay spinach out across the platter. Arrange eggs, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, carrots, radishes, avocado, green beans and baby potatoes. 

**Add extra dressing if necessary.
