1. Start by making the dressing. Put the garlic and rosemary sprig in olive oil in a small saucepan. Heat on medium until it begins to sizzle, about 1-2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let sit for 20 minutes, allowing the rosemary and garlic to infuse in the oil.
2. Remove rosemary sprig from the oil, discard. Remove the garlic from the oil, reserving the oil. Then add the garlic, basil, lemon zest, and lemon juice to a food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Pulse until smooth.
3. In a medium bowl, gently add the garlic mixture in with the beans until they are well coated. Let sit for a few minutes for the beans to absorb.
4. Gently mix in the reserved olive oil, spinach and tomatoes.
