A few months ago, in the earlier stages of pregnancy, I told my husband I was craving a good salad.
I told him kind of what I had in mind, and then he added some thoughts as to what might go together well.
For some reason I would go grocery shopping, and somehow come home without the ingredients needed to make this salad...I think it was because I didn't want to commit to buying stuff and having extra if it wasn't going to be as good as I wanted it to...
Anyways, I now make this at least once a week. I add little variations here and there, depending on what's in the cupboard.
Trust me folks, it's so yummy!
- baby spinach
- Feta cheese (the one we have is a block)
- Raspberry Vinaigrette
- Romaine lettuce
- Parmesan cheese wedge
I just grab a good-sized handful of baby spinach and throw it in a bowl. I also usually roughly chop 2 leaves of Romaine lettuce. Toss in a small handful of walnuts and Craisins. With the Feta I slice off a small section and then roughly chop it up, same with the wedge of Parmesan cheese.
If I have bacon in the house...which let's face it, I usually do...I will cook up 2 slices of bacon, chop them up and throw them in the salad as well.
Toss everything with the Raspberry Vinaigrette, and enjoy!
