Summer is here and you know what that means. Strawberries are in season.
I love me some strawberries, but a person can only eat so much strawberry shortcake. Sometimes we gotta mix things up. And when sweet and savory combine...cha-ching! Our taste buds are in for a treat.
Last week I talked about my daughter's bridal shower. And because it was a brunch, I wanted something on the menu that was a little more lunch than breakfast. Since it was an all girl event, salad seemed the perfect thing. And it doesn't get much easier than this.
Here's what you'll need:
- One 10-12 oz package baby spinach
- Half a small red onion, thin sliced
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
- Blue cheese crumbles
- Sliced fresh strawberries
- Your favorite red wine vinaigrette
Toss together the spinach, onion, almonds, strawberries, and blue cheese. Add 1/4 cup of dressing and toss again, adding more dressing as desired.
This looks really impressive served in a pretty bowl. And the only thing better than impressive is impressive, easy, and yummy. And this recipe has it all.
Well, the countdown is on. Only 4 more days until the wedding. We're scrambling to get everything cleaned, decorated, and just so. All worker bees--aka family--are in position. We have our assignments. Now it's time to execute.
Operation Wedding is under way.
Will this mother-of-the-bride survive?
Will the bride turn into a bridezilla?
Stay tuned for the continuing saga of As the Wedding Approaches.
