As I was eating my salad at lunch today I began to feel guilty for partaking of something so yummy and not telling somebody about it.
A salad this simple, yet delicious, should be shared.
So I grabbed my cell phone and snapped a photo for you. I was too lazy to take a real picture.
It is my go to meal when it is just me and the kids here at home during the day. Or for dinner when my husband is away and I don't want to cook a big meal.
I was inspired by the "Strawberry Pecan Chicken Salad" at Longhorn. But was less than inspired by their salad's calorie count so I decided to try and create my own version.
This is what I came up with:
The perfect mix of Baby Spinach and Spring Mix.
*When in season I add strawberries as well and they only sweeten the pot.
This dressing is to die for in my opinion.
I love it so much I take it to restaurants. Don't be afraid to do this. Most restaurant dressings are oozing with pointless fat. And in my opinion they are tasteless. So I take my own and whip it out when my salad hits the table. It is light and delicous. Perfect.
*Disclaimer: I cannot be held responsible for any embarrasment or shame you bring to your family by whipping out said salad dressing from the black hole that is your purse. It will be your responsibility to tell them to get over it. Be strong.
And there you have it. A simple yet healthy and delicious salad. Enjoy!
