Sensational Salads

In the craziness that has consumed us recently, I have become used to a quick but healthy lunch … salad. Salads can be SO boring, especially if you’re having them every. single. day. So, here are a few that I have enjoyed as of late …

SPINACH SALAD w/ STRAWBERRIES

  • fresh spinach (the farm has had the most amazing spinach this year!)
  • fresh ripe strawberries
  • candied pecans (easy to make, store bought fine too)
  • parmesan balsamic vinaigrette (recipe below)

This is my favorite salad to curb a sweet tooth!

HEARTY SPINACH SALAD

  • fresh spinach
  • sliced mushrooms
  • turkey bacon (or regular bacon if you wish)
  • croutons if you desire

This is great for a heartier appetite!

PARMESAN BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE

  • 2T balsamic vinegar
  • 1T olive oil
  • 1T fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 3T finely grated parmesan cheese (I like to use my micro-plane to get it super-fine)

Shake contents together in jar. Refrigerate any left0vers.

CARROT, RADISH, and BEET SALAD

  • 1/4c julienned carrots
  • 1/4c julienned radishes (red or daikon)
  • 1/4c julienned beets
  • 1T apple cider vinegar

Toss veggies with vinegar and let sit for at least 30 mins. Serve scoop over mixed greens or bed of your favorite lettuce.
