Love it

I hadn’t made this extremely popular salad since way before we moved to the desert.  Hard to believe because for about 2 straight years-it was a “go to” recipe.  

We all loved it-even the older boys when they were little!

I was talking to my daughter Sam and asked if she had any requests for dinner.  They‘re coming over Sunday night with our almost 1 year-old Jackson.  Adam is going to help dh put a new area rug down under the bed in our room.  With furniture this heavy and a king-sized mattress, I have no idea how the 2 of them will manage this feat.

But I digress.  Back to my conversation with the younger of my daughters-

Sam asked for noodle kugel.  It’s easily one of hers and Adam’s favorite and now little Jackson has decided his cousins have no idea what they‘re missing by not eating it!

Then Sam requested our Cauliflower/Spinach/White Bean and Feta Salad.

“We haven’t had it in forever-I think that would be a really nice change from the TrueFood Kale salad“.

She’s absolutely right.  Especially since we’ve had that one 2 nights this week already.  tongue out

I’m sure I’ve posted this salad before:

1 lg head of cauliflower, in florets
1 10 oz (or more) of baby spinach
1/2 C sheep/goat’s milk feta, crumbled
1 15 oz. can of white beans rinsed and drained.

Toss it all together and dress with:

1/3 C evoo
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2-1/2 tsp. lemon zest (it’s optional but I love the added freshness and hey, you‘re already juicing the lemon!)
1-1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

I find if you have a canning jar you can make up a batch or two (depending on the size of the jar)and keep it for about a week and use at will.  it’s a great dressing!

Toss the veggies/beans with the dressing and then top with the cheese crumbles.

I like to let it sit in the fridge for about a half hour-no more though or the spinach goes from nicely wilted to “ew, how sad“.

Love it

    • Sounds yummy to me.  I LOVE feta, but can’t get hubby to eat it.

      I had intended to have Sunday dinner today, but various things conspired to make that not work out.  But my daughter had requested “noodle salad.”  I asked her if she meant macaroni salad and she thought that might be it, but she wasn’t sure.

    • LOL-kids have fun names for their favorites.  Not just kids, really-my dh actually asked for my “birds in a nest” for breakfast this morning!  Made it for our kids all the time, now the grandkids.  Guess he looked at it the other day and thought, heck-why not?

      He did ask me to add a bit of cheese-the way they serve it at Denny’s.  happy
