This faintly Mediterranean salad serves grilled scallops over a bed of fresh spinach, with a topping of pine nuts and dried tomatoes. It’s easy enough to make—even the homemade Balsamic-Lemon Vinaigrette can be prepared in just a few short steps. The key to making this recipe perfectly scrumptious is making sure it’s all balanced: Avoid adding too much vinaigrette, so the spinach isn’t soggy, and refrain from adding too much of the pine nut-dried tomato mixture, so the flavors of the scallops shine through.
