It's that time of year when we all start thinking about our summer wear and how we feel in it. I always thought that as long as I fit in last years clothes I'm fine, but after a visit to the doctor for an annual visit I am convinced otherwise. It's important for all of us to look at a five year window and to take notice. Time passes by so quickly as we move through our life events and are really just trying to keep up. I am fine......just saying pay attention.
Today's post is all about this simple salad. Basically all my favorite ingredients with a few dried raisins and walnuts. By the way the walnut vinaigrette is wonderful.
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 cup olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons shallots
1/4 cup walnuts (chopped)
salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch romaine (chopped)
1 large head broccoli (chopped)
1/2 green granny smith apple (sliced thin)
1 handful golden raisins
1 handful pea sprouts
1 handful walnuts (chopped)
Add all ingredients in food processor, pulse until combined. Adding 1 tablespoon of water and then another if needed.
Add all ingredients, mix with dressing and serve.
Cheri Savory Spoon
Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
