Cheesy title. I know. Know what song I am referring to here?
Sublime :) One of my all time favorites....
Anyone else’s appetite seem to whittle when the temperatures start to soar? Or is it just me? Enter the salad. I sorta have a love/hate relationship with salads. See, they are the perfect quick meal: toss some lettuce in a bowl, add your favorite toppings, mix some dressing in….instant meal. Other times the thought of “rabbit food”, as it is sometimes referred to by my peers, for a meal leaves me feeling like a chump. Seriously, what kind of person wants to eat foliage for their meal?
Well, when it looks like this, I’d have to answer, this person right here!
Spinach, fruit & nut salad w/Pomegranate vinaigrette (so simple~this is hardly a recipe)
Blue cheese crumbles (optional)
Nut/seed of choice (I chose sunflower seeds because i’ve been obsessed with them lately!)
3 T pomegranate red wine vinegar
1 T EVOO
1 t agave nectar (or sweetener of choice)
LOTS of cracked black pepper (it really makes the difference)
In a bowl combine dressing ingredients & whisk until blended (normally you would whisk while you add your EVOO but I can’t be bothered to do that most days). Add spinach, toss to coat. Add fruit, sunflower seeds & cheese. Eat.
And if eating “rabbit food” leaves me room to eat one (or 10) of these, bring it on :)
What salad combo are you loving lately??
