This salad is so delicious! It is almost like a meal in itself and happens to be my fabourite way to eat spinach! Spinach well known for being very high in antioxidants but less known for it’s high folate or folic acid
What we love: This salad is healthy, delicious and filling! It doesn’t take very long to make yet is fabuous!
What we love less: nothing unhealthy about this one! However you do have to make the correct amount as it doesn’t keep well.
½ cup balsamic vinegar (or slightly less)
½ cup olive oil
¾ teaspoon salt
2 or 3 turns of the pepper grinder
Grill (or under the broiler)
½ red or orange pepper
½ green pepper
½ yellow pepper
(if you like zucchini slice into ovals and grill 1 zucchini as well)
Cut these into large chunks and put them in a bowl. Pour some olive oil over them and season with salt and Garlic Plus seasoning or your favourite seasoning. (Garlic Plus can be found at Costco in the ClubHouse seasoning section)
Place baby spinach on a platter with a sprinkling of baby greens and pour half of the dressing over the salad. Place the grilled veggies on top as well as:
2 sliced tomatoes or half a package of cherry or grape tomatoes (better if you slice them)
Pickled artichoke hearts cut in half (as many as you like)
A handful of green and black olives (each, whatever kinds you prefer — Mediterranean being an obvious choice!)
Pour the rest of the dressing or some Little Creek dressing over the top of the veggies and serve! To take this salad up a level, add some lightly steamed asparagus with a little Garlic Plus on them. Delicious!
