I’ve had a mild obsession with salads lately. I think it’s because Willie and I have been listening to food podcasts and talking about food. In our house, endurance sports and cooking are the main topics.
So I’ve been trying to come up with some salad ideas. I’ve also been told that I’m having iron issues so I’m trying to eat more leafy greens because apparently I don’t eat enough of them. I do this though so I don’t have to take those nasty iron pills.
1 package baby spinach
1 package baby kale
1/8 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup evoo
1/8 cup dried cranberries
1/8 cup sliced almonds
Stevia, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Throw it all in a bowl and mix it together. Put it in fridge for 10 minutes before serving.
I should have used regular kale with this one because the “dressing” really overpowered the salad. This one is probably going to hit the redo, but it was still good. Willie enjoyed it and he’s not a salad man.
It’s light and refreshing and easy to make. It’s a great choice for a summer salad. This happened by accident but it was a welcome surprise. There will be more salads coming at you soon.
What’s your favorite salad?
