Spring Spinach Salad Recipe

Spring Spinach Salad Recipe

I love a big, green salad, especially in the spring. Romaine, arugula, mixed baby greens, spinach, escarole, even cabbages, and good ole iceberg make crisp and healthy salads with limitless possibilities. I decided to tell you how to make A spinach salad. Some of my favorite salad ingredients include something salty, something crunchy, something sweet, and something cheesy. Springtime calls for salad as an accompaniment or a main dish. You can top almost any salad with grilled chicken, thinly sliced beef, or even shellfish and you’ll have a filling and nutritious meal.

Spinach is plentiful right now, so spinach salad is quite popular in my house. There are quite a few ways to serve a spinach salad that satisfies both sweet and savory tastes. To indulge your sweet tooth, make spinach salad with sliced fresh strawberries, red onion, toasted slivered almonds, and crumbled bleu cheese. Toss with a raspberry pecan dressing just before serving. My friend, Kelly, brought this salad to me when I was under the weather and it was delicious. If you wanted to make a more savory salad, start with fresh baby spinach and add crumbled bacon, slightly steamed asparagus, feta or goat cheese, and a light vinaigrette. Either of these spinach salads is sure to please, and these salads are budget friendly since they are made with spring veggies and fruit.

My go-to spinach salad calls for ingredients I generally have on hand all year. My Spinach Salad has salty bacon, crunchy walnuts, sweet dried cranberries, and creamy bleu cheese. Give it a try and experiment with your own favorite toppings. Top with leftover grilled meats and fish for a more filling meal. Salad is never boring; it can change each time you serve those healthy, vibrant greens.

I love asparagus! As Connie notes, asparagus can be used in a number of ways. Last week I served a delicious hors d’oeuvre; bacon wrapped asparagus. It was full of calories, but oh so good! Thanks to Connie for this recipe. Check out Cook with Connie for more fantastic recipes!

Spring has sprung…and fresh spring vegetables are beginning to show up in the grocery stores and at farmers’ markets. One of the first vegetables to make a spring appearance is asparagus. Asparagus is low in calories and sodium, plus it is a good source of calcium, magnesium, zinc, dietary fiber, protein, and many other nutrients. This tender stalk vegetable is most delicious steamed crisp tender with just a little butter, salt and pepper. But, it can certainly be added to a number of dishes making them fresh and more flavorful.Continue reading

Homemade Sloppy Joes Recipe

Homemade Sloppy Joes Recipe

In my opinion, anything that’s served on a bun or eaten with your hands is the perfect family-friendly meal. I grew up eating Manwich sloppy joes.  Rather than use the canned sloppy joe sauce that is full of sodium, I gave home-made sloppy joes a try.  I used a coupon and got a can of fire-roasted tomatoes for next to nothing, so I built my sloppy joe recipe around those smoky tomatoes.

 To make the recipe as healthy as possible, use a ground meat that is naturally low in fat, such as, lean beef, turkey, venison, or chicken.   Serve your smoky joe on a whole wheat bun alongside fruit or veggies and you have a quick and easy, updated favorite.
