Salad days of summer…

For some reason, I was convinced that I didn’t like raw spinach.  Or any spinach for that matter.  I spent months avoiding anything with spinach in it.  The thought would turn my stomach.  But I got on a Green Monster smoothie kick and wanted it to be accurate, so I bought a bag of baby spinach.  A few nights ago, I decided to use it in a salad.  Behold, the dinner I thought I’d never eat:


Greens! Nom nom nom!

  • Kale (0PP)
  • Spinach (0PP)
  • Grape tomatoes (0PP)
  • Carrots (0PP)
  • Zucchini (0PP)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Balsalmic vinegar (0PP)
  • 6 kalmata olives
  • 1 tbsp fat free feta cheese (0PP- Reduced fat feta has 0PPs for 1tbsp, so I’m assuming that fat free feta is the same.  It’s just a sprinkling for taste)
  • Black Pepper (0PP)
  • Spice House Lake Shore Drive Seasoning. (0PP- This is a local spice shop blend.  I don’t know exactly what is in it, but I do know they offer a salt free version, so I’ll have to check it out some time!)

Such a fantastic dinner, and all for 2PPs.  I want it again and again!
