Simple Spinach and Tomato Salad

Rich Tomatoes, can you Resist that Gorgeous Red color? This cold weather has being really harsh for them more so for the  Farmers.  It is a harsh, but cold winter here in the South, as the farmers say..what!!? You didn't knew what the Groundhog told me?...

I found some beautiful Nice Cherie Tomatoes and I was thinking hmmm, should I cooked them? Then I  say, you silly mary! cook'm! eat'm! love'm! and then take pictures lot's an lot's of pictures! 

I often ask  I'm I  the only one that gets so excited when  pouring hot pasta in the colander?  When she sees Mario Batali shredding that Parmegiano Ohhhh' toes curl'!

So yes... besides Running/ Painting and Wine testing" I admit I have a  Passion for Food!  Specially healthy one's.

I can't say I am the all puritan" all  green saint' nope I pretty much eat everything from fruits, pasta, beans veggies and yes Pizza. But with moderation of course'

  ...So as you know with camera ready and fork!  and  here it is!,  included a recipe for a simple and lush healthy salad that can be accompanied by  any Jealous  Meat'

Simple Spinach and Tomato  Salad

A Bag of  Spinach

1 lb Cherie Tomatoes

Would you  like to do the vinaigrette?   Here is The Recipe:

1 Cup Balsamic Vinegar

1/2 Cup RedWine Vinegar

 1 Tbs. Dijon Mustard 

1Tsp  of Sugar

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil or Canola

1/4Ground Garlic 

and yes my beloved  Parmigiano-Reggiano for the Salad

Washed the Spinach  Several Times if you have a Salad Spinner it is very convenient' 

 Add The Cherie Tomatoes

Sometimes Simple is better: and soothing" Your protein will be, The   Spinach! you are not only consuming Vitamins. But for those of us with lot's to do! Energy!!!

Don't have the Time to do  vinaigrette? I Recommend  Balsamic Vinaigrette called OlDE CAPE COD

  1. Looks great, We make a salad really close to that. The only thing different is we soak small pieces shredded chicken in the vinaigrette over night. My wife also uses some kind of hard bread with melted cheese I think its vienna. Nothing better than a great salad.
