Spinach Salad With Sesame Vinaigrette 

I have been taking a little break from the blog world to spend some precious time with my family for the holidays.  It has been nice but I really have missed visiting all the wonderful and delicious recipes that are out there.

Spinach Salad With Sesame Vinaigrette was part of my 5 course Annual Christmas Tasting Menu.

Quick and easy Spinach Salad packed full of delicious flavor! Click To Tweet

This salad was a hit!  Spinach leaves topped with Dried Cranberries and Toasted almonds and then the Toasted Sesame Seed Vinaigrette……YUM!  The Vinaigrette had the perfect amount of sweetness from the honey and I’m a serious sucker for Toasted seeds/nuts.  I love that my parents wanted the remainder of the dressing to take home for future salads!😜

As I mentioned above, this was part of a 5 course meal.  I was working so quickly that I snapped the photo before I added the dressing.☹️️  I arranged the spinach to form a wreath and then drizzled the Toasted Sesame Vinaigrette over the top right before serving.  

Such an easy salad to prepare but it looked so beautiful and tasted so delicious!

Here was the menu I prepared


The first course was a really fun and unique recipe that was fried polenta topped with caramelized red and yellow onions and crispy pancetta.

Second course was a choice of Roasted Poblano Cheddar Soup With Ham or Creamy Bacon Corn Chowder 

Third course was this delicious Spinach Salad 

Fourth Course was Steak Diane with Hasselback Parmesan new potatoes and peas with bacon

Fifth course was a dessert medley With Mini Pecan Pie Tassies, French Macarons , Butterscotch Truffles and sliced Pecan rolls.

The family really enjoyed the food and festivities.  It was a wonderful Christmas and I’m lucky to have been surrounded with the ones I love!

Happy 2017!  I hope you all prosper this New Year and I’m looking forward to sharing many new recipes with you all!

Thanks for reading!

Happy Blogging!
