Spinach Salad With Grapes, Blue Cheese And Almonds

by jerseygirl on October 18, 2012 · 9 comments

Last night I had dinner at Table 31 in Philadelphia. It was so good, it was ridiculous. I will be posting more about my fabulous dinner next week but today I decided I should eat on the lighter side. I made this salad for lunch. I loved the freshness of it and the ingredients can be easily obtained year round. This is something I will probably be eating twice a week in the fall and winter.

How about you? Do you eat salads at lunchtime? What is your favorite at this time of year?

I like spinach, grapes, almonds and cheese. Just not blue cheese.

I’m eating healthier too. I guess it’s working my eye doctor said my eye pressure was lots better since March.

Great looking salad! I just purchased some grapes the other day, so I’m going to make this, but without the blue cheese. I’ve not learned to like it yet.

Hmmmm – I wouldn’t have thought to add in the grapes to a salad like this, but it seems like it works well. I’ll have to try this sometime soon.
