Pie Plate Salad

Another pie plate salad tonight, since Johnny's re-heating the stuffed crust pizza he ordered during the Superbowl. I set to work using up leftovers my own way - on a salad!

Tonight's salad consisted of:

Butter lettuce leftover from the lettuce wraps
Superbowl broccoli, celery, carrots, green peppers and cucumbers
leftover chicken breast from last night's dinner
sliced almonds
sunflower seeds
chinese rice noodles from the lettuce wraps
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
dried cranberries
Annie's Goddess dressing

This week's BSI is hosted by Brandi at Bran Appetit and she chose SPINACH! I'm really excited because I absolutely loved Popeye growing up and could not have fallen for the whole spinach ploy harder. I cannot remember ever not liking spinach, even though it always had a bad reputation. Earlier today I was trying and trying to rack my brain to recall a recipe I used to make in high school. I can vividly remember thawing frozen spinach to squeeze out the excess water and mixing it in with a batter of some sorts, but my memory ends there! Very frustrating. I'll have to search through some old notebooks I used to write recipes down in and see if anything looks familiar. Otherwise, I'll get creative with some fresh spinach I have on hand.

How cute is this pasta for a special Valentine's Day dinner? Bonus that it's on sale!

I LOVE Annie's Goddess dressing - by far my fav.

Do you have a Big Lots near you? I have found Annie's dressings there for .80 cents a bottle!

Good eats tonight!

I was just going to say the same thing. Biz got me the Annie's Goddess dressing for X-mas and it was gone within a week!

Nice healthy salad!

When I won Biz's salad dressing give-away I had to choose the Goddess, b/c by then I was so curious. We went through that and now I buy it on my own! Winning it was funner, but you gotta do what you gotta do...
