My first time posting.

My book group took a weekend holiday out to the Oregon Coast.
Home today I threw together the leftover salad makings and relived the yummy and healthy salad I chowed down on Saturday night for my late lunch.

Talk about fast cheap and health, here it is.

A classic spinach salad.

Organic Baby spinach out of a bag from Trader Joes, sliced red onion from my garden, Trader Joes sweet and spicy pecans, blobs of goat cheese all mixed up with Brianna’s Raspberry dressing. The original was dressed with Brianna’s Poppy Seed and frankly the two dressings taste almost the same which worked for me. For a bottled dressing Brianna’s is not bad.

I like eating greens and this salad is a good one. Greens, nuts, goat cheese, onion and spices. Add orange slices or apples for fruit and or throw on leftover chicken. Don’t over dress it and don’t eat five servings and it is a sublime and happy lunch. It does incite the desire for wine though…so still better at dinner when one can more acceptably indulge in the mighty red.

February in Seattle and it is almost time to plant spinach seeds. I do have a bed of arugala that wintered over and I certainly could have made a similar salad with it. Next time.
