1/2 cup fresh lemongrass, thinly sliced
1/2 cup violets, primroses, or other edible flowers (optional)
Store-bought raspberry vinaigrette to taste


Combine the spinach, mint, prunes, walnuts, and lemongrass in a large bowl. The edible flowers can be mixed in with the salad at this point or used as a garnish on top. Pour the vinaigrette over all, then toss well and serve.
