The purpose of What’s For Dinner? is to provide you a recipe with items on sale this week, with no more than 10 ingredients (not including pantry items), and coming in at under $10 per meal.
It finally feels like Spring. I’ve started to see the tulips push their little green heads out from the cold hard ground.
And with Spring comes the realization that Summer (and swim suit weather) will be here soon.
That realization always “encourages” me to start eating better.
So I’m sharing my favorite Strawberry Spinach Salad.
Strawberry Spinach Salad
8 cups of spinach, washed and dried (you can also throw in some romaine too)
1 cup strawberries, sliced (Strawberries are $.99 as part of Price Chopper’s Weekly Deals)
4 oz. feta cheese (blue cheese is also very tasty)
1 medium red onion
4-6 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 cup vegetable or olive oil
1/4 cup sugar or splenda
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1. Mix salad ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Mix dressing ingredients in a container with tight fitting lid and shake.
3. Cover salad with dressing to desired “coveredness”.
PS: Now is a great time to also buy strawberries and freeze them for a later date. Check out my tutorial on Freezing Strawberries.
What about you? What is your favorite salad? Anyone else start eating good at the prospect of swimsuit season? Share it with us via the comments or on the Kansas City Mamas Facebook Page.
