My Favorite Spinach Salad Recipe

Last Friday I thought we would have a relaxing weekend because we had no plans, but one trip to the mail box changed everything! Our wedding photos finally arrived and we were so excited to look at them…the only problem was that our photographer sent us over 1,000 and none were edited. We literally spent the entire weekend sorting through them, which was fun, but really time consuming! The weekend just flew by and now its already Monday again. One easy addition I love adding to my dinner menu on busy nights is this healthy spinach salad with pomegranate dressing, walnuts, and crumbled goat cheese. I got the idea from a really upscale restaurant we went to in Carmel last month. It is an excellent combination of flavors, I hope you like it too. I have also seen a similar version of this spinach salad at a different restaurant where they used butternut squash-yummm.

P.S. Here is one of our wedding photos. It was so windy, my hair was going everywhere that day!

    I enjoy your blog. Do you have a recipe for the pomegranate salad dressing or is that a bottled dressing? Congratulations! Thanks for the photo.

      Hi Nicole! I actually haven’t found one I like so far, so I have been using “Simply Dressed” Pomegranate Dressing, and the main ingredients are water, pomegranate juice, sugar, olive oil and vinegar. Maybe someday I will give it a try. Let me know if you end up finding a good homemade recipe!
