Maybe there's a recipe in this blog...

This is me, blogging from my first very own laptop.
Aren’t you proud!
Well, you should be, if you’re not.

Anyway, I’ll post pictures later…I found some that didn’t make facebook, but until then, I have a recipe I’d like to share.
This salad has been my obsession for about four months now.
I finally perfected my own.

Strawberry Spinach Salad
(I’m not putting measurements, because it’s completely up to you, and how many people you’re feeding! For example, you can choose to have this as your meal or as your side.)
Baby Spinach
Red Onion (diced or sliced, your preference)
Blue Cheese Crumbles
Bacon bits (Homemade is best, but if you’re too busy for such things, go ahead and buy ‘em.)

Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing
2-3 Cups of fresh or frozen strawberries
½ Cup of Olive Oil
¼ Cup of Balsamic Vinaigrette
1 ½ tbsp. sugar (I actually didn’t include this in mine and it tasted fine, so I’ll say this is optional)
½ cup water
Pinch of salt
Dash of pepper

For the dressing, just blend.

Off the record, I added a bit of lime juice-that’s not in the original recipe, but it still tasted good…

For the salad, just mix and eat.
If you desire, you can make your salad pretty by arranging a few fresh strawberries on your finished salad before you devour it.
Also, it’s pretty tasty when you add almonds or candied pecans.

If I feel up to it, I’ll post a recipe for candied pecans. It also requires little to no measuring, since when I learned I was watching, not reading.

Your mouth will thank you for it

I’d post a picture, but I ate it too fast.
