After a few days indulging in wine country and a few more days at home without fresh groceries, I just want vegetables. I feel like the next time I go on vacation, I need to hire someone to do some fresh food shopping for me for when I return! Hmmmm maybe I can start that sort of business? Or has Peapod already done it?
Anyway, a quick, seasonal, and delicious salad recipe is always welcome in my life, and I thought I would share my latest favorite with you.
Only a few ingredients can make an outstanding dinner salad:
1 bag organic baby spinach
1 pint blueberries
1/2 cup crumbled honey goat cheese (from Trader Joe’s, sweet, creamy deliciousness! )
1/4 cup chopped Bermuda onion
I topped this with a mix of 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 TSP honey, and some ground black pepper and salt. It is summery perfection in a bowl.
I really never get sick of salad. Since I discovered Olivia’s Organic’s, I have loved salad even more, simply because they have great salad mixes AND their salads are always bone dry. The spinach I had been buying from Shaw’s was pre-washed but so wet that it rotted within a day, leaving it pretty much gross and useless, even for smoothies!
Today I plan on raiding the farmer’s market in Copley Square. I want squash, kale, tomatoes, and whatever else they have going on this time of year. And then I want lots of sleep and time to catch up on writing. I have about 15 posts in my head right now, and I just need the time to write them!
