Soooo I definitely have not been cooking. Combine the end of the school year with good weather and a bf who is willing to grill out, and…where’s the motivation?
I finally got around to assembling something today, which I’m going to count as “cooking.” I’ve been on a berry kick recently, and had the idea to pick up some spinach, walnuts, and feta to assemble a berry-spinach-vinaigrette salad. No recipe, just tossing some things together.
- Baby spinach
- Chopped walnuts
- Crumbled feta
- Raspberry vinaigrette
This was DELICIOUS. I was ravenous by the time lunch rolled around, because I forgot to bring snacks to work today. I was thinking about snagging something from the snack box in the lounge, but didn’t have enough change to buy anything. This salad totally filled me up. The vinaigrette was amazing. I used Olde Cape Cod, which upon inspection of the nutrition label, has sugar listed as the second ingredient. Which may explain why it was so tasty. Either way, I enjoyed the salad.
I would like to explore homemade raspberry vinaigrette recipes in the future, especially with easy access to fresh local berries at the farmers’ market. But for now, store-bought will do. And I’m definitely making this salad again.
