Howdy y’all! Everyone have a good weekend? How amazing was this past Saturday’s weather? I mean it was practically t-shirt and shorts weather. Do you know what else kind of weather it was? Salad for dinner weather.
This spring season is also the season we have salad for dinner about twice a week. I love me a big pot of chill or stew, but it is this time of year that I crack open the salad section of my recipe binder.
The important thing with salads for dinner is ensuring they are jam packed with loads of goodies so you aren’t hungry an hour later. And this spinach salad is overflowing with lots of delicious and filling additions. Crispy roasted corn, broccoli, and peppers, sweet and savoury candied walnuts, lots of creamy old cheddar, and a fresh basil dressing. To reference Seinfeld, this is one “big salad!”
I’ve also thrown in some roasted tofu for added protein and staying power. Some leftover chicken or steak would also be a great addition.
It’s t-shirt weather and salad for dinner weather- the best kind of weather if you ask me!
