Desserts and rich, hearty dishes seem to be popular at potlucks. Every time I go to a potluck, I take something light and healthy and everyone thanks me for it :). I recently went to a mom’s potluck and took this salad:
Something about providing people with one of their servings of veggies for the day makes me feel so good inside. Haha. I think I’m meant to be a dietitian!
The key to getting people to want to eat vegetables–make them look pretty! For this salad, I used: spinach, a red bell pepper, blueberries, cucumber and walnuts. Also, a good salad with bad salad dressing is actually a bad salad! I used my ‘Aunt Irene’s’ salad dressing to dress this salad. This is a good staple that makes any salad taste better! The dressing deserves it’s own post so look for that in the coming week ;).
Per usual, I went home with an empty bowl after the party. Everyone LOVED the salad. Healthy and tasty too!
