Very Yummy Mushroom, Apple and Pecan Salad

What you need: 

a few handfuls fresh baby spinach
a few handfuls romaine lettuce
3 to 5 baby bella mushrooms or 1 big portabella, finely chopped
handful (or 2) pecans
1/3 large apple, diced. I only had Red Delicious, but any sweet variety will do!
1 clove garlic
apple cider vinegar (I suppose any vinegar might do)
extra virgin olive oil (or any olive oil)
ground cinnamon

What you do: 

I made up this recipe last night and enjoyed it. It's quick, light, easy, and yummy.
In a small skillet, pour a little olive oil. Add chopped mushrooms. Let simmer. Chop garlic into small pieces.
Add garlic to mushroom and oil. Let simmer until soft. Turn heat off when cooked the way you prefer. (I think garlic tastes best less-cooked)
In a small cup, add 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Then add 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil. (This depends on how vinegary or oily you want your dressing to be). Add some ground cinnamon to your oil/vinegar mixture (as much as you like). Mix together with fork.
Combine romaine, spinach, and diced apple in your salad bowl or plate. Add mushroom mixture to bowl. Toss with Dressing. Add pecans on top. Eat with favorite utensil, as hands will get messy with dressing.
