Stinky Breath

anonionsalad.jpgWhat do you make when you find yourself home alone for the weekend, without a husband in sight, when you are sick of sweets and hearty food, and you’ve been reading about delicious salad’s all week and you have some wonderful new Alejandro & Martin Olive Oil that you want to try out? Me? I make a Spinach and Red Onion Salad. Yes… red onion, which is the equivalent of really stinky breath. No need to worry though because the only person within my breaths distance is my 6 month old baby, and she hasn’t complained so far. If you are interested in offending others with your stinky breath, but tasting an amazingly simple salad, here’s the recipe adapted from Recipezaar:

Fresh Spinach Leaves, Washed and Spun Dry (I just use the pre-packaged bag of spinach)FoodPics046.jpg
1 Medium Red Onion, thinly sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (may I suggest Alejandro and Martin’s 2005 Greek Fragrant and Fruity blend…delicious!)
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Garlic flavored croutons
Add to bowl, toss and serve.

    Ok, just WHERE is everyone getting those oils?? I have read several posts about them!! They sound divine!

    And your salad also sounds great! I love spinach and really missed it during the recent e.coli issue. Your photo is SO lovely!

    Kristen, I like salads very much – this is worth trying!

    My father loves garlic in his food, but we couln’t have a decent conversation afterwards. So I learned from a friend that you have to take a piece of orange zest, chew it a lot and then swallow it.
    My dad has been doing this ever since and we no longer had problems communicating. 😀

    Oh god, I totally hear you on the rich food. I am so ready to start eating like a rabbit after the holidays, and this spinach salad looks like a great place to start.

    I’ve been eating lots of yummy salads for lunch lately! My favorite lately has been greens with orange slices, walnuts and vinaigrette. Sorry I’m not a big fan of raw onion :-)
