This salad is something that we usually serve during the holidays and we usually serve it with white truffle oil for the dressing. Chi Chi Chi, lol! I guess if you don't watch Real Housewives, you won't get that reference… Anyhow, I decided to make this Spinach Salad differently since I'm serving it with Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pie.
I headed over to Walmart to grab everything I needed. I grabbed the Chicken Pot Pie over in the freezer section by all the other Marie Callender meals, you can learn more about their products here and to get more recipes of theirs, go here! You can also follow them on here for more inspiration, Me – I love a good Marie Callender's Banana Cream Pie!
- 1 bag of Spinach
- Cherry Tomatoes
- wedge of Parmesan Cheese
- Pine Nuts
For the Dressing
- 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Start with making the vinaigrette in the bottom of your bowl. Squeeze about half of the lemon into the bottom of the bowl and while whisking, add the olive oil to get good emulsion, then add your salt and pepper to your liking. I like a wet salad so add or take out however much dressing you'd like at this point.
Add your spinach to the bowl. Shave your parmesan into large pieces and cut your cherry tomatoes in half, next add your desired amount of pine nuts. Toss the salad completely and serve with your pot pies that have been cooked according to the package directions.
I love this salad and the brightness compliments the pot pies really deliciously. The crunch is nice and I love any of Marie Callender's golden flakey pie crust so I devour that within seconds, basically ignoring any filling until the end!
