Spinach Summer Salad

When I made this spinach summer salad, I had veggies leftover from a visit to a local farm.

It was fantastic, and I loved knowing that I had supported a local farmer while getting some good-for-me nutrients in the process.

My tiny, apartment-sized vegetable garden is not producing yet, so in the meantime, I have no problem buying local produce. Especially since so many farmers in my area avoid the use of pesticides. It seems to be a growing movement that I am proud to support.

This simple farm-fresh vegetable salad can be made in under 15 minutes, is filling, tasty and great for lunch or a quick dinner.

NOTE: For this salad, I used my recent Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing. It went very well with this salad.

  1. Finally! Someone else who does not enjoy summer! I love all the fresh summer fruits (peaches, cantaloupe, RASPBERRIES, I could go on…) but I am not a fan of all the sunshine and sweat inducing temperatures.
