Recipes that fail #1

Tried this salad recipe the other day. Failed miserably. Perhaps it's that I'm not hugely fond of avocado. Perhaps I had too much spinach in the salad so that I couldn't get much of the raspberry jazz flavor. Whatever it was, it sucked. Won't try this one again.

Raspberry Jazz Spinach Salad

  • 1 bunch fresh spinach
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 cup seeded and finely chopped jalapenos
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts (can be substituted with slivered almond or walnuts)

Clean and chop the spinach. In a saucepan, add red onion and avocado. Add raspberries, jalapenos, balsamic vinegar, and pine nuts. Stir over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until warm. Pour the warmed mixture over the spinach leaves, toss, and serve.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
