Lyndi Fultz: Raspberry and Spinach Salad

Okay, let’s get real. It seems like 90% of the time that I write a Foodie Friday post, it is a salad. What can I say? I really dig a salad.

The thing is, I didn’t always feel that way. A salad was meant to be a garnish, a side dish, or a filler food that you put in a realllllly large bowl to make it look like you were serving guests a ton of food. It wasn’t meant to be the main dish or the meal itself. In fact, whenever I would go out to eat with teammates and they * gasp * ordered a salad as their meal, eye rolling would commence.

Now? Gimme a salad. I’m a convert.

This raspberry and spinach salad should be called the Raspberry, smoked turkey, feta, almond, and avocado spinach salad instead of Raspberry and spinach salad. You can’t put a salad like this in the corner. In fact, I may ask Debbie to rename this post the “No one puts Baby spinach and Raspberry salad in the corner.”  This salad was meant to shine on its’ own.

If you are craving something healthy, this is your salad.

If you do not want to prep tons of vegetables, this is your salad.

If you want a comfort food that won’t mess up your diet, this is your salad.

If you want a satisfying meal that is delicious, this is your salad.

And most importantly, if you want something eat while watching Dirty Dancing on your day off, this my friends, is your salad.
