when making salads, what should the lettuce, spinach, etc weigh to make a serving of vegetables?

One pound of spinach, partly trimmed should yiled about 7-8 servings of 1 cup raw, and about 3-4 servings of 1/2 cup cooked.  One pound of leaf lettuce, untrimmed, should yiled about 5 servings of 1 cup each.  One pound of salad mix would yield about 6 servings of 1 cup each.
