I am a big lover of salads, especially in the summer. It is so freakishly hot here in Florida, that the only things I am even able to eat is salads and fruits. I came up with a great salad dressing recipe, because I can’t seem to find a salad dressing that in the store, that makes love to my taste buds. The one that I make at home sure does :).

I also love goat cheese a lot, and I find many ways to eat it ( check my More Healthy Snacks post ).

Yesterday I went out to eat at a restaurant and the salad there, wasn’t even close to being as good as the one I made at home today.

The recipe:

 

Ingredients ( I forgot to add 2 ingredients to the picture, I will list them instead )

Chop Green Onions and add them to already chopped bowl of spinach ( I like my spinach in small pieces rather than large leaves, it tastes better that way )
