Spinach and Raspberry Salad

Do you love it when you stumble upon a tasty dish; one you whip up quickly out of the slim picken’s that are in your refrigerator?

The refrigerator was empty and  I was looking for something light to have for lunch…something that would fit into the 21 Day Fix meal plan. #21dayfix  I had seen a couple of clean eating salads on Pinterest but it was one of those days, and I wasn’t inspired at all. I grabbed a couple of ingredients and whipped this up…and now it’s my favorite! The salad is so simple, it’s crazy and its also easy to substitute for some variety

Spinach and Raspberry Salad   (Single Serving)

  • 1 Cup Fresh Spinach
  • 1/4 – 1/3 C of Rasberries
  • Honey balsamic Dressing (1tbsp balsamic vinegar and 1/2 tbsp of honey) Make sure the honey is mixed in to the vinegar well since there is such a consistency difference here. Sometimes I stick my small container in the microwave for about 10 seconds to thin out the honey.

Drizzle the the spinach and fruit with your salad dressing and voila Yumminess! Sometimes I literally want to drink the salad dressing or lick the place…but I control myself.

Variations:  Use strawberries or blueberries instead of raspberries (or mix them all), add some sliced almonds, pecans, or choose your favorite nut, add a teaspoon or so of feta cheese or even some red onion. Really…you can add just about anything! Well except hard boiled eggs…I didn’t really like that, but you may!

….so if you’re like me and you find yourself with no food in the house (Yes I’m exaggerating…but that’s what it feels like) give it a shot.
