I had chocolate-covered pretzels the other day and I try to eat junk food only once a week, but last night I was totally craving something sweet. Since I had just gone grocery shopping, I had plenty of fruit in the apartment, so I whipped up this lovely salad. “You are amazing,” I thought to myself when I took that first bite. Of course, I am not to be trusted when it comes to opinions of myself, so you’ll have to let me know how this goes if you decide to make it.
Sweet Fruity Salad
All fruit/vegetable ingredients are fresh; use at preferred ripeness and use more or less of anything as desired.
- Spinach leaves (enough to cover a plate; this is a salad after all!)
- One plum
- One medium or large strawberry
- One large handful of blueberries (about 1/4 cup)
Wash the spinach leaves and place them on your plate as you would for any salad. Wash and chop the plum and strawberry into not-too-small chunks (see picture above for example) and add them to your salad. Wash and add the blueberries, top with honey as if it is salad dressing, and sprinkle cinnamon (not too much!) across the top.
And voilà! Super quick and easy, as salads should be, and I promise it is sweet as can be. Obviously, you can use whatever fruits you want, as long as they’re sweet. I’m sure raspberries and/or blackberries would be amazing, and who doesn’t love peaches? You get the idea.
I know this recipe isn’t anything fancy, but I just wanted to share what I thought was a great crave quencher. I hope you enjoy! 🙂
