  • Salads don’t need to be boring! Fresh baby spinach, ripe strawberries, toasted almond slices and creamy feta cheese come together to create a delicious and nutritious meal! Top that off with cracked black pepper and some balsamic vinegar and you got yourself a stylish dish that will impress any guest.

    Not only your taste buds will be thankful for this salad, but your whole body will too. Baby spinach is a great source of vitamin A, C and K, as well as magnesium. It is difficult to find a vegetable which contains as much vitamin K as spinach does. Also the strawberries contain lots of nutrients and aid your digestion due to their high fiber content. Almonds and feta offer a source of protein.

    But let’s not forget the occasion we are celebrating today. St. Patrick’s Day is here!! In my eagerness to create a St. Patrick’s Day themed post, I completely oversaw the fact that I already had. I literally prepared this post still wondering what ”green” dish I could make. I don’t know what made me so blind that I totally overlooked this recipe. But somewhere along the way the fresh green salad did strike me and a St. Patrick’s Day post was born. It’s fun to celebrate all these ‘firsts’ as my blog is still very young. I can’t wait to look back and have a collection of “green” recipes.
