summer salad

One of my favourite salads that my mom and I started making recently really reminds me of a summer-y salad.

we used spinach with cut up strawberries and sliced almonds. Then for a dressing we mix a tiny bit of olive oil with some cherry vinegar and pour it over top the salad. That’s all there is to it! Super easy!

We got our cherry vinegar from Dutch Growers and they have several other flavours, and flavoured olive oils. They even suggest the vinegars on ice-cream, and I tried it the other day and it wasn’t too bad, it was pretty good actually.

spicy salad??

I was on Pinterest looking at different salads. And one that I kept on seeing was a corn salad thing. It looked fairly good but I didn’t have all the stuff for it so I improvised. My salad ended up being spicy but it was still really good.

1 romaine lettuce heart

Cucumbers and Carrots

1/4 cup of parmesan cheese

3/4 of a cup of corn

Pinch of crushed red pepper (Spicy! add more for more spice)

for the dressing

Drizzle of olive oil

1/2 tea spoon of minced garlic (or more)

1/3 cup of rice vinegar

Mix it all together and pour it over salad. Remember the longer the salad sits with the dressing on it the spicier it will get. Enjoy!
