My husband and I LOVE salad. I guess that is good especially since I am going back on Weight Watchers next week. So, my salad fix has to be of great variety and I have enjoyed coming up with a few new ones lately. Someone took us to Maggionos not long ago and we ordered a different salad than we had had in the past. I was pretty pumped when both Brian and I raved about how good it was. So, I set out on a mission….to determine all the ingredients. There was a blue cheese but we had switched that to parmesan just because sometimes the blue cheese is way too strong. I tried it the very next day at home and I’ve tweaked a few things, but we love it! I had the privilege of catering a luncheon at a nearby mission board and this was the salad I served.
Red & yellow bell peppers
Sautee these in a little olive oil until softened. Place them on some paper towel and let them cool for a bit.
Fresh Parmesan cheese
Put your spinach on the plate and top with all your toppings. Garnish with the pine nuts and drizzle the BV over top.
