Spinach Salad with Mandarin Oranges
Happy Friday! This week was definitely a good one, my blog is now listed on the Certified Yummly food blog list! Yummly is a great site for finding delicious recipes and I'm really excited to be featured on their list of recommended food blogs. Also, I added a new page to my website for interiors!
On that note, I will end the week with this healthy spinach salad with mandarin oranges. It's a tangy, delicious dish that's perfect for lunch or as a side with dinner. The original recipe calls for chopped red onions as well, I left them out because I don't like onions in salad, but feel free to add them in yours! This can be made in minutes and is perfect to pack up in a tupperware for lunch at work.
With the left over spinach, I'm going to saute it along with some chopped chicken and make a quick alfredo sauce and mix it all in with bow tie pasta. It's one of my favorite dishes and it's great for kids who don't like spinach because you can chop it into little pieces and slip it in this dish and they might not even taste it or notice it's there!
Zora was a big help this week too and as I'm writing this she's on the floor next to me so she can say she was there from start to finish. I had to get a series of shots done that didn't involve food and she decided to steal some of the props to chew on. Then when I moved on to this salad she really couldn't help herself and stuck her nose right in the picture. She never observes quietly from the side, she's always right in the middle of it trying to 'help'. (But how can you say no to that face!?)
Hope you had a great week!
