  1. Recipe

The other day I opened my fridge to make our classic lettuce and veggie salad for dinner, and I realized I had no lettuce. Great, dinner was ruined. While I angrily shoved things around in the fridge, I noticed my giant tub of spinach. I don't usually enjoy salads that only have spinach as the greens, but I decided to give it a go in a final attempt to save dinner, and I'm so glad I did! Sometimes the best kitchen ideas around here come from desperation. 

We love this salad, its so easy and so healthy, and it tastes and looks like something you would get at a restaurant.The ingredients are simple. Just some baby spinach topped with bell pepper, cucumber, blueberries, strawberries, and of course feta. It takes less than 5 minutes to throw all this in a bowl and then you are good to go. I use a homemade strawberry balsamic dressing (recipe is below!) for this salad, but feel free to top with any fruity dressing you prefer. 

This salad is the perfect summer side. The touch of sweetness from the berries pairs nicely with the stronger flavor of the spinach, and the feta just brings it all together perfectly. This is the first salad that I have ever made that I put fruit in, but it definitely will not be the last. Are you a fan of fruit on salads, or no? Let me know!
