Even though it is almost May, we still have a little snow here in Utah. I am not a cold person, so I drown my winter sorrows by eating food that reminds me of summer! This recipe comes from Our Best Bites and is one of my family’s favorites! It is perfect to bring to a summer barbecue or eat in your sweat pants dreaming of warm summer days. 🙂
Spinach Mandarin Poppy Seed Salad Recipe:
(Makes 6-8 servings)
8 ounces (1/2 bag) of baby spinach
1/2 head Romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 avocado, cubed
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (12 ounce) package bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 large can Mandarin oranges, drained
Poppy Seed Dressing:
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon mustard
1 green onion, ends removed
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. Combine all dressing ingredients in a blender and blend until completely smooth. When ready to serve, toss salad with desired amount of salad dressing and serve immediately. If you anticipate leftovers, dress salads individually to avoid wilting.
With summer just around the corner, it means that dreaded swimsuit season is on it’s way! Being a food blogger, I am required to be in my kitchen a lot. That means that I spend a lot of time eating, especially desserts! Yikes!
I decided it was time to start getting in shape, and found Suja Juice!
has a huge variety of different juices, packages and cleanses.
I have always wanted to try a cleanse, but don’t have a lot of extra time to spend learning how to do it correctly. Suja Juice sends their juices right to your door! It doesn’t get much easier than that! You can choose to do a 1, 3 or 5 day cleanse. I tried the 3 day cleanse. It was hard at first to transition from eating cookies and brownies throughout the day to only having juice, but I felt so great! Doing the cleanse with Suja Juice helped me to feel healthier, have more energy and give me the push I need to start living a healthier life!
Be sure to stop by and check out Suja Juice for yourself!
