A SWEET AND SAVORY SALAD

Hey folks,

I'm a little late tonight as I had a very long day.  It's times like these when I come home that I want to throw something quick and easy to eat for dinner.  It's always good to have ingredients handy to throw together a salad for times like these.  The following recipe delivered to my inbox from VegNews, mixes some sweet and savory for this salad selection.  Check it out!

APPLE RAISIN SALAD

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup raisins

3/4 pound mixed greens or baby spinach leaves

2 apples, cored and sliced into half moons

2 medium carrots, ends trimmed, cut into matchsticks

3 tablespoons pine nuts, lightly toasted

1 tablespoon salt

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Extra virgin olive oil, to taste


DIRECTIONS:

Soak the raisins in warm water for 20 minutes, or until soft and plump. Drain and gently squeeze to remove excess water.

Toss the greens, apples and carrots together in a large bowl. Sprinkle the pine nuts, raisins, and salt on top. Drizzle the vinegar over the salad, followed by the oil. Serve immediately.
