simply spinach.

i had a craving for this salad
and the result didn't disappoint,
if i say so myself which i just did.
we love big bowls of greens
in varied style for dinner
and this dish ranks high on
our *love it* barometer. 
i make it fairly often.

simple ingredients made in advance:
spinach {no stems}
cracked black pepper
tomatoes
toasted almond slices
hard boiled egg
crispy bacon
saute'd red onion
with pepper, parsley, fresh garlic, & kosher salt
white balsamic dressing drizzle


into a good size bowl for easy tossing ..
good for the body,
good for the soul. 



what's on your table?

    1. enjoy! i got all the ingredients together and prepped earlier in the afternoon so that come dinnertime (for i was working on a project all afternoon) it was easy to toss the ingredients together and chow down.

  5. Sherry, it has been ages since we've last "spoken". I took a blogging break and am back to blogging. We sold our house in NJ and have moved to the mountains in North Carolina. It is good to find you again! I hope you remember me!
