You can substitute lime juice for the lemon juice to change up the flavor. You can also use any leafy greens instead of the spinach, such as arugula or basil, to create variations on this recipe. My wife and I put chilled fresh tomato chunks (not canned) and red bell pepper slices on top and then sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Next time I'll sprinkle some blue cheese on it. REMEMBER: If you add cheeses or other calorie rich items to garnish your dish, count those calories along with the calories of this recipe!
