Fruity Spinach Salad

Well this week has finally arrived…dreaded finals week! 4 finals down! Only 2 more stand between me and Christmas Break and I am super excited for this week to be over! Since I have been so busy finishing up this semester (and running out of food in my refrigerator!) I have been hitting my local grocery store’s salad bar a lot. One of my favorite salads lately has been recreating one that I got at a restaurant in Ocean City, Maryland over the summer. It’s a super quick and cheap way to get some of your fruits and veggies for the day! Here are the ingredients with some of my adjustments:

Spinach
Craisins (high in sugar so I normally leave out or add very few)
Cucumbers
Feta cheese
Carrots
Pecans (can be substituted for pine nuts)
Strawberries
Raspberry vinaigrette (totally worth the splurge, but go for the low fat/low sugar option)

Mix all of these ingredients together and you get a yummy salad that takes you back to those warm summer beach days! Hope you enjoy and good luck on your finals if you are taking them 🙂
