Sweet Potato Spinach Salad
With the summer heat already here, it’s the perfect time to start eating our salads again! Don’t know why but the winter months just doesn’t spur up our appetite to munch on salads as a main meal but when the heat kicks in, its bar the door Katey, here we come a knocking! Just loved this combination of veggies, cheese and bacon and it will grace our plates again before too long; I mean, who doesn’t like spinach, sweet taters, lotsa red onion, feta cheese and crispy fried onions?
Of course, husband and daughter had to add extra ingredients to theirs which I thought would take away from the taste I wanted to accomplish, their problem not mine! I also used a little bacon fat drizzled over the top of mine, which I got severely scolded for by my daughter, it’s something I do very, very seldom so give me a break!!! They both used a three cheese Italian dressing which did go very well to.
We also tried Nabisco’s new Sweet Potato Good Thins which were over the top as a compliment to the salad. If you haven’t tried these new baked treats from Nabisco, you should put them on the top of your grocery list. They also come in other flavors which are just as good……………
- Amounts will depend on how much salad you will be making:
- Fresh spinach, washed and drained
- Sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed and cooked until tender
- Bacon, fried or baked until crisp
- Red onions sliced into rings
- Crumbled Feta cheese
- Salad dressing of your choice
- Arrange a bed of spinach on a plate.
- Top with remaining ingredients and finish off with your dressing.
Hope you enjoy! Oh, we did make it to the Air Show and it was wonderbar to say the least! Even got to meet some of the pilots before the main attraction, almost forgot I was with Husband, ha ha, just joking!! If you’ve never been to one of these air shows, don’t hesitate as they are some of the most down to earth guys and gals you’d ever want to meet and they are so appreciative of your support by just being there!
