Adding pecans, dried cranberries, red onions and mandarin oranges to your spinach makes for a great salad. This is more method than recipe.
Feel free to vary the ingredients for what you have on hand. Use apple, celery, raisins, walnuts, sesame seeds… You can also add goat cheese, feta or Parmesan.
I love a slightly sweet vinaigrette with this salad. It’s easy to whip up homemade Raspberry Vinaigrette. You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry now.
This is the type of salad I could eat and eat. And that’s a great way to pump up your daily fresh fruits and vegetables!
- 3 Tbs. seedless raspberry jam
- 2/3 cup oil
- 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
- Warm the jam in the microwave for a few seconds until it become slightly melted.
- Place all ingredients in a container with a tight fitting lid. A mason jar works well for this. Shake to combine the ingredients.
