Spinach and Pear Salad

Spinach and Pear Salad- Recipe at: Stephanie-spring.com Spinach and Pear Salad- Recipe at: Stephanie-spring.com Spinach and Pear Salad- Recipe at: Stephanie-spring.com Spinach and Pear Salad- Recipe at: Stephanie-spring.com‘Tis the season of pears (and a gazillion fruit baskets!) But in all honesty, the sugar intake has been a little higher than normal lately over here. That being said, a clean and healthy salad is exactly what I’ve been needing. Plus, the flavors make for an ideal side at any Holiday party. Did I mention that is take about five minutes to prepare? 🙂


Ingredients:


3 cups spinach

About 1 pear (cut into cubes)

2/3 cup crumbled feta

2/3 cup sliced almonds

Dressing:

1 tsp EVOO

1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar

S & P to taste



What to do:

Place spinach in a medium sized bowl. Top with pear, feta, and slivered almonds. In a mason jar, create dressing and shake well. Pour dressing over salad and serve immediately. Enjoy! 🙂

*Serves two.*


 

Friday Favorites

This week was a loooong one! BUT, it’s Friday and I’m really thankful for that!

One.Each year I get a gift for my co-workers. When I saw this picture (leave it to the Gaines’!) I had an idea to switch things up and create a homemade gift this year. Buy a mason jar, make my homemade granola, and simply put a gift tag on it with a sweet note! Done! 🙂 I can’t wait to hand these out!

Two.You could also make some of my Peppermint Bark. It’s definitely a crowd favorite!

Three.

Remember how I said here that we are redoing our guest room? It’s being turned into our nursery and the crib is being delivered on Saturday! 🙂 How could that not be a favorite?

Four.For our wedding, we received (a round version) of this bin. I love the style of it and the fact that it holds most (we have a lot) of our blankets! I saw this the other day and ordered one since it was on sale. I now love it equally as much that I plan on ordering a few more. I’m thinking in the bathroom closet as storage? To hold books next to our desk? I have a million ideas in my head. 🙂

Five.This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m today! Make sure you enter here! Happy weekend!
