We have had nearly 6 days of being snowed in under 15 inches of perfect snow. We have done all the snow things.
*Build a snowman. Check.
*Build an igloo. Check (work in progress).
*Snow angels. Check.
*Snow ice cream. Check.
*Board games and Mario Bros. Check.
*Slow roasted soup. Check.
*Hot cocoa. Check.
The list goes on and on. If you're anything like us, getting snowed in means warm and cozy comfort food. Rich stews, saucy pastas, and grilled cheese on the side of just about everything. But I was really craving a salad, and went on the search for something new. I found several complicated salads with pears that all looked really yummy. Yeah for the pears, not so yeah for the complicated. So I put together the common ingredients into something much simpler, and then hid this from the family and ate almost the entire thing myself (I saved a little for Jeremy, but the boys will have to wait for the next one).
1/2 cup walnuts
5 oz. spinach
1 pear, diced (I used Bosc, and left the peeling on)
1 small container of feta cheese
Dressing of your choice (balsamic vinegar for me)
Mix it all up, drizzle with dressing and enjoy! It's got the crunchy (walnuts), the creamy (feta), and the fruity (pears). It's perfect.
Can it get any easier?
