When I think about it, I really am not the type to pick up recipes from other people.
Mostly, I think, because I love creating my own thing and I am not a big recipe follower. I mean, when I started this blog 4 years ago I really had to force myself to pay attention to the amounts of ingredients I added to things so that they could be repeated by others.
But this salad is the exception.
My Aunt Lisa has been bringing this to family functions for as long as I can remember. It’s one of those salads that you try to get ahead of the little kids in line for, so you can get at least a taste before it’s quickly devoured by one of your 60 cousins(just me, huh?).
After a huge thanksgiving dinner full of multiple amazing dishes, this is the one thing I always want more of, and that, on the rare occasion that there is a little left at the end of dinner, I find myself eating out of a paper cup, sprawled out on a couch somewhere trying to make more room in my tummy.
It’s just that good.
Spinach mixed with iceburg, Swiss cheese, cottage cheese, bacon, mushrooms, pomegranate seeds, and of course, my
favorite poppy seed dressing. This is my favorite salad to date.
If you are still looking for a side to serve at tomorrows dinner, this is it!
I hope all of you readers have a wonderful day and travel safely to wherever you are headed, be it next door or across the country! I am so thankful for each and every one of you , for giving this blog a purpose. Thank you for your support, for reading my posts and using my recipes, for your kind comments and shares. I am SO grateful for that!!!
