Crispy spinach salad with orange-gorgonzola vinaigrette…
HAVE IT FRESH!
It’s been an incredibly good summer this year, and I can tell, since we’ve stayed home and really hoped for some sun and do-able temperatures. It was exactly what we got: it was a blast to be able to go outside with only some flip-flops, tops and shorts.
We live in the south of Amsterdam, just a few hundred meters near the famous Vondelpark, where friends and family meet each other after work or in weekends, with bottles of chilled drinks and baskets stuffed with goods. So you can imagine what we’ve been doing night after night!
Barbecues and little gatherings with kids and friends, sun and fresh food… staying out ’till the sun is long gone.. it’s like the ultimate summer joy. And since I kind of know how to get around in my kitchen I’ve been sorting out some good salads to bring along.
This spinach salad really isn’t hard to make but has this nice twist because of the gorgonzola mixed with orange, which makes it a dish of it’s own.
Healthy as hell, and great on your plate! 😉
