Recipe review: Spinach Strawberry Salad
So on our new-and-improved weekly Date Night, I made the Spinach Strawberry Salad from my Eating Well When You’re Expecting book.
It was a very spur-of-the-moment decision. I was flipping through the book while I cooked the burgers, and realized we actually had the ingredients to make it. Like I could just open the fridge and make it.
SIDENOTE: That never happens with recipes, because I am the world’s pickiest girl — and do not own most normal ingredients. Other than green onion.
So I threw it together excitedly — because hey, when you never follow a recipe unless it’s on the back of the Hamburger Helper box, it’s pretty cool. Even though I am not a salad girl, and it was really yummy. Even Darling Husband ate it, which is huge — he’s definitely a meat guy.
I won’t post the full recipe — because I highly recommend you buy the book
, and I don’t particularly want to get sued — but it’s not a tricky recipe. Baby spinach, sliced strawberries, and almonds — plus a drizzling of vinegar, canola oil and brown sugar. Mmmmm.
Yup, I bought it. I have NO IDEA how these weird mini-pearl-shaped things are going to taste, but there are at least three recipes in my new fave book
, and I’m going to try one of them. Pray for me!
