Spring Salad

Spring Salad

I figured since it’s springtime and getting close to summer, we should do a fresh salad. Salads are fun because you can throw anything you want into it, and its bound to taste good. Besides, I’m sure you were hoping for a recipe to use with that balsamic vinaigrette…

This salad can be as big or as small as you want it, and there is no limit to the amount of the ingredients you can use. It’s a salad, after all!

Here we go!


  • romaine lettuce
  • spinach leaves
  • goat cheese crumbles
  • diced red bell pepper
  • grape tomatoes
  • croutons
  • candied pecans (or any other nut)

If you don’t know how to make candied pecans, you can learn how to do so here!



  1. Combine lettuce, spinach, bell pepper and tomatoes in a bowl and toss.
  2. Add the goat cheese, croutons and candied pecans. Toss together.
  3. Top salad with the balsamic vinaigrette and enjoy!

And there you have it! Pretty simple, huh?

If you try this out, please let me know! I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
