The title of this post pretty must sums up the recipe. We were invited for dinner at our friends’ the other night. I asked what I could bring. She told me ‘nothing’ and, of course, I insisted, so she said ‘salad’. 🙂 She mentioned she was making pork, so I asked some gals on a cooking board I frequent what kind of salad they thought would go well with pork. The common response was ‘spinach salad’.
I had everything but the spinach on hand already. So, on grocery day I picked up the spinach, and then on the day of the dinner all I had to do was throw everything in the bowl and mix it up. Quick and easy!
Measurements are left up to your own taste. You can also improvise any of the ingredients to your liking. There are so many ways you can make a spinach salad…I’ll leave you with mine:
Spinach Salad with Cranberries, Mandarin Oranges & Pecans
baby spinach leaves
canned mandarin oranges
freshly grated Parmesan
balsamic vinaigrette dressing
Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and serve with the dressing on the side.
