Inspired by... salad


Re posting this recipe for my all-time favorite salad because I want to share with everyone the fabulous recipes being posted at Tidy Mom's Salad Social today!


This classic salad bowl set was a gift from a dear friend:




I love it! and it's perfect for filling with:



Spinach Salad

(Recipe source: Taste of  Home)

1 package (6oz) fresh baby spinach

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional, we like pecans or slivered almonds best)

1//2 can mandarin oranges (optional)

1/2 to 1 cup feta cheese

1/3 cup olive or vegetable oil

3 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon sour cream

1/2 tsp Dijon mustard

In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients.  In a jar with tight fitting lid (or dressing cruet), combine the remaining ingredients; shake well.  Drizzle over salad and toss to coat; serve immediately.  Yield: 6-8 servings.


The warmer weather means we're craving lighter foods.  This collection of salads will give you plenty of choices throughout the summer months!


I'd love to hear which one is your favorite!
