I’m kind of at a loss of what to say tonight. I went to the gym for the first time in, umm… 3 years this morning and I’m pooped. As in, I got home from the gym at 11, took a shower, put on my
pajamas comfy clothes, and have done almost nothing else today exhausted.
What the heck? So much for that whole exercise-gives-you-energy-and-you’ll-feel-like-eating-healthy garbage. Give it time, I know, I know. 🙂
Regardless of my apparently dysfunctional relationship to exercise, I at least have the fact that I LOVE salads going for me. And, as promised on Monday, this salad includes my favorite candied almonds along with a few other equally enticing ingredients; baby spinach, red onion, dried cranberries, avocado and a sweet white balsamic vinaigrette.
- Baby Spinach
- Red onion, sliced
- Honey Candied Almonds
- Dried Sweetened Cranberries
- Sliced Avocado
- 1/4 C white balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 C olive oil
- 1/3 C canola oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced fine
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tsp poppyseeds
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients for the dressing except for the oils. While whisking, slowly pour the oils in a small stream until they are completely incorporated with the vinegar mixture. Serve over spinach, onions, avocado, cranberries and almonds.
