Mr. Priebe’s Never Fail Salad

Shared by Monna McDiarmid

Some people get bummed out about making salads. Maybe that is because they always make the same salad so they are BORED… or maybe it’s all that chopping. The thing is that salad does not have to be boring OR hard work. Here is our friend Jay Priebe’s secret to great salads…

– a leaf (Romaine lettuce, iceberg lettuce, spinach etc.)
– a fruit (fresh or dried – raisins, apple, pear, mango, tangerine, cranberry, tomato (yes, a tomato is a fruit), strawberry)
– a nut (peanut, cashew, almond slivers)
– a cheese (cheddar, feta, goat cheese, parmesan, asiago, mozzarella)
– a salad dressing

Favourite variations:
– Romaine lettuce, thin slices of fresh pear, cashew halves, small chunks of blue cheese served with an oil and vinegar dressing (Monna McDiarmid)
– Baby spinach leaves, pistachio nuts, chunks of blue cheese chunks, cubes of grapefruit, and a salad dressing made of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and maple syrup. (Jay Priebe)

Spinach Dip

Shared by Monna McDiarmid

– 1 cup mayonnaise
– 1 cup sour cream
– 1 pkg Knorr vegetable soup mix
– 2 pkg spinach (frozen-shredded or fresh)
– 1 loaf of pumpernickel bread

Defrost spinach, be sure to squeeze out excess water. Blend ingredients together. Hollow out loaf of pumpernickel bread. Spoon mixture into bread. Use excess bread to dip. Can also use crackers.
