Spinach, Yummy Spinach

March 6, 2011

It snowed again on Friday.  Yes, it is early March, and in most parts of Canada that still means winter.  But this is Vancouver Island.  I don’t recall snow down here in the valley even in February.  However, I do only have two previous winters to compare this one to, so perhaps this isn’t unusual.  And although it was snowing heavily at work, by the time I got home it was raining heavily, as  I live right by the ocean.

Anyhow, I’m tired of winter so I decided to go for summer in the kitchen, and picked up a package of strawberries to make my favourite salad, which again, is an Allrecipes.com recipe.   However, it actually is a recipe I created and submitted to the site.   I have modified it a bit since I came up with it 6 years ago, and this time I made it without the chicken.

Strawberry Spinach Salad with Ginger-Lime Dressing

(serves 1, vegetarian, but it’s also really good with chicken)

1 tbsp plain yoghurt (or you can use mayonnaise as I originally did)

2 tsp lime juice

1/4 tsp ground ginger

pepper to taste

1-2 tsp milk

2 cups fresh spinach, torn

4-6 fresh strawberries, sliced

1 1/2 tbsp silvered almonds

In a bowl, mix yoghurt, lime juice, ginger, pepper, and milk.  Place spinach in a bowl, top with strawberries and almonds.  Drizzle with dressing.

As I was cleaning the spinach I felt a paw on my leg.

“Can I pwease have some spinaches?”

Cats eat grass, so I figure a little greenery shouldn’t hurt him.

Like a squirrel with a nut!

“Nom nom nom…”

“Yum… that was ‘licious.”

Chai, you are a weirdo.
