Spinach Salad

Salad

 
RECIPE

300 gram fresh spinach
1 big handful of basil, sliced
200 gram grilled chicken
250 gram brown mushrooms
250 gram strawberries
100 gram roquefort

Toss the spinach with the following simple vinaigrette:
juice of half a lime
5 T olive oil
2 t honey
1 small shallot, very finely chopped
salt & pepper

I like to use the more creamy kind of honey for this dressing. To dissolve it, put in microwave for a few seconds.  The oil you add is depending on how much juice you get from the lime. This can annoyingly enough vary a lot.
The mushrooms I sliced and grilled in the grillpan. The chicken I marinated very shortly in olive oil, garlic and some limejuice, then smoked it for 5 minutes, then grilled it. 

Call me crazy, but I liked the combination of ingredients so much that I decided to write it down and share with the world. And of course to remember it for a next time I want to make this.
Ah, and next time I’ll hopefully remember to add the haricot verts that I had planned on grilling and adding.  ;)

Served with ovenroasted potatoes.

    Hey Robin,

    What a wonderfull blog with super foto’s.
    Tonight I gave your spinach salade a go.
    It was a big succes with my guests, even the children enjoyed it, in spite of all the ‘spinach green’!
    Some of us were vegetarian, so I had to replace the grilled chicken. I used some kind of tofu stuff which I marinated and baked. Wasn’t too bad at all.

    Greetzzz,

    Roos
