Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

Growing Up with Salads

In general, I'm a savory person. And I certainly do not like my savory getting all mixed up with the sweets. For example, fruit bagels? What? Naturally, I was always a little put off by fruit in green salads. I usually just skipped on by... but at some point in the last year or two I became an adult. Adults try new things and develop sophisticated tastes... don't they?

I sampled an especially intriguing strawberry and spinach salad last spring and watched with awe as a co-worker ate a blueberry-spinach-goldfish cracker salad (seriously!). I think I've been won over.

Spinach Pomegranate Salad

All that to say I made a delicious green salad the other night... with fruit. You should make it too:

baby spinach
half cup of chopped walnuts
fourth cup alfalfa sprouts
fourth cup thinly sliced red onion
fourth cup of feta
pomegranate
balsamic vinegar and olive oil

Or something like that...

Jill, that looks like just my kind of salad. I really love salad with sweet and savory together -- cranberries and Gorgonzola are two of my favorites in salad.

Have a great day!

You've got to try red grapes in the salad! Yummy!
