    The Blender Girl's Note:

    There are tons of delicious spinach salad recipes out there. But this recipe holds a special place in my heart. We have been eating this in my family for years. My auntie contributed this spinach salad to a charity cook book, and we have all been sucking in the spinach with gratitude ever since. The original recipe contained fried bacon pieces. I substitute this for kidney beans, which is a fantastic alternative for vegetarians. You still get the protein, and also the splash of red color. For me, the mark of a good salad is – one where there is a great mix of flavors and colors; a good dose of nutrients; and you are able to grab a perfect bite with every lift of the fork. This spinach salad recipe checks all the boxes for me. It is packed with protein and iron; is easy on the eyes; and can be prepared in a jiffy – Popeye would be proud.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 bunches organic Baby Spinach, large bunches, washed and dried
    • 8 hard boiled organic eggs, chopped finely
    • organic red kidney beans (1 can drained and rinsed thoroughly)

    DRESSING

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the spinach in your salad bowl and arrange the kidney beans in a large mound. Make a smaller mound of chopped egg on top, and sit aside until ready to dress.
    2. 2
      Place all of the dressing ingredients in the blender and pulse until well combined.
    3. 3
      Alternatively you can put in a glass jar and shake vigorously.
    4. 4
      Pour the dressing over right before serving, and toss gradually, being careful not to saturate. Less is more with this dressing, as it can be very rich. I always have dressing left over. If you are taking this salad to an event, take the dressing in a jar, and toss just before serving. As they say in the salad kingdom – dress and devour!
