Spinach Tossed Salad

Spinach tossed salad can be delicious!

Today, I made myself a spinach tossed salad.  It was so delicious.  I want to share with you how I put it together.  It wasn't totally healthy, but I was craving it.  Of course, you can add and/or remove ingredients.

Here are the ingredients I used for my salad.

The salad was easy and fast to make.  I just gathered the ingedients I desired.  I would have like a boiled egg, but I was too lazy to make some.  Anyway, the picture above shows the ingredients of spinach, pre-cut tomatoes, cucmber, Italian dressing, and croutons.  As I said, you can add other things like cubed cheese, cubed meats, and crumbs of bacon, if you'd like.

The salad in the container is tossed best upside-down.
I assembled the salad.  First, I put in the desired amount of spinach leaves.  I added the pre-cut tomatoes, cucumbers, and croutons.  Then, I poured some of the dressing and two small pinches of salt.  The next part was fun because I cover the salad and turn the container upside down and shook.  (This is so funny to me because I'm listening to a song with the words, "Shake, shake, shake...")  

There are some considerations when making a salad.

Keep a mini-compost bin.

When peeling a cucumber, don't throw the scraps in the trash.  Have a container handy.  You can put those peelings in the container.  Later you can throw them in the compost bin.  You can make some healthy soil for a garden and reduce trash for the landfill.

Use a gallon size baggie to keep spinach fresh.

Something used to discourage me from buying spinach.  I would buy the spinach.  Then, it would take me a few days to eat it.  Sometimes, my family would only consume half of the bag.  Now, I put the bag inside a baggie to keep the spinach fresher for a longer time.

Well, I hope you liked my spin on salad making, using spinach. 

How about you, my readers?  Have you made a salad lately?  Why or why not?  I encourage you to add spinach; it's touted as a better ingredient than plain iceberg lettuce.

This has been an entry for Saturday Spreads.
