This Week's Photo


* Baby Spinach Salad with Pecan Halves
* Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing
* Lowfat Cottage Cheese
* Berry Medley

Preparation Notes

Baby spinach is not only delicious, but it's packed with nutrients too. Prepare a simple salad with just a few ingredients, or go all out and make it fancy. Some of our favorite toppings include: avocado, red onion, cherry tomatoes, pears, pecans, radishes, crumbled goat cheese, and cucumbers. The raspberry vinaigrette tastes great on spinach and complements the berries packed on the side.

Create a spinach salad.

Prepare the salad dressing or include one of your store-bought favorites.

Add a few scoops of lowfat cottage cheese.

Drop a mix of berries into one of the medium containers.
