Mom Meals: Spinach, Raspberry and Cheese Salad

We have a standing weekly potluck with friends of ours who also have an infant. This makes for a great evening in, as we both have the resources to care for small humans at our homes.  Whoever hosts cooks the main dish, and the visitors bring a side or dessert.

Tonight's mom meal is one of my favorite salads: Spinach, Raspberries, Cheese and Poppyseed Dressing

  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 1 bag spinach
  • 8 oz crumbled feta or blue cheese
  • Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing
I toss this salad in a big Tupperware bowl with the lid on (so much easier than me trying to awkwardly toss a salad with salad tongs) and then serve it.

I especially love this salad with feta or another goat cheese, but this evening's hostess is NOT A FAN of goat cheeses; blue cheese makes a nice substitute.  If raspberries aren't available, you can also slice in strawberries or try out raspberries for a nice splash of color, flavor, and nutrition -- as long as the berries have at least a hint of sweetness, they'll it nicely with the salty flavor of the cheese and the sweet dressing.

If you're not having to slice strawberries, this is totally something you can do one-handed, with a baby on your hip!
