Looking for a deliciously simple salad recipe? Look no further! Try this Simple Spinach Salad.
I don’t know about you but I love salads. I try to have one in every meal. However, sometimes meals call for a really simple salad and this is my absolute favorite one.
Baby spinach is light in taste and deliciously fresh making the best salad base. Toasted walnuts add another layer of flavor and of crunch. The parmesan cheese gives it that extra sophisticated touch. Just add a really nice olive oil, a dash of lemon juice, salt, and fresh ground pepper and you’re good to go. This is simply the best spinach salad.
Tip: if you’re out of walnuts substitute for almonds or pecans (whatever you have at hand).
