I love a colorful salad!

I snapped these photos the other day on a whim. I wasn’t planning to blog about this salad, but this has become a go-to meal as of late. Light, easy, satisfying, somewhat healthy.  [As a rule, I only eat salads if they involve cheese.  And bacon.]

So, I thought I’d share. The ingredients are all approximate; make it as large as you like. Feel free to leave out ingredients or swap in others.  This is what I did to make one salad.

What you need:

  • generous handful of fresh spinach
  • generous handful of romaine lettuce
  • tablespoon of goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1-2 cups strawberries, stems removed, roughly chopped into small pieces
  • 5-6 snap peas
  • 1-2 teaspoons of chopped pecans
  • 1 slice of bacon, chopped
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • salt and pepper

What to do:

Put the spinach and romaine in a large bowl, and toss to combine. Add the strawberries, snap peas, and goat cheese.

In a small bowl, whisk your lemon juice with the olive oil (using a fork) and season with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over salad. Top with chopped pecans and bacon.

Note: It doesn’t seem like a lot of dressing, but it goes far!
