Ladies and gentlemen, we break away from my recent cauliflower obsession to bring you this lovely, spinach salad. 

I realized that greens have been all but absent from my diet for quite some time now. So I decided to rectify that and went straight for an old favorite that I haven't made, for whatever reason, in years.

Several years ago, when I lived in San Diego, there was an Applebee's in our local mall. And whenever the kids and I went shopping, we would have lunch there. 

They had a spinach salad with shrimp that was so amazing! I always ordered it. 

Oh, I would tell myself that I needed to stop being so boring and predictable. To branch out to try a new dish.

But then I would tell myself (yes I have conversations with myself quite often) "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"! 

Then one day I went to have my beloved salad only to see that it had been removed from their menu?


How dare they!! 

Nobody consulted me in the process!!

I begrudgingly ordered another salad and pouted the whole time I ate it.

Then a few weeks later a good friend of mine told me that she was going to make me a salad that I would love as much, if not more, than my now greatly missed leafy dish. I seriously doubted it but was willing to give it a try.

I am sooooo happy that I did! 

For a while, I made this salad at least once a week. But then I moved, the recipe was put in a book, and I didn't find it again for years. 

Until last week! 

Now, this tasty little baby can once again grace my table.

Hopefully, Kevin won't mind having it once a week!!

  1. This looks like an incredible salad. My kids and husband love their shrimp! I'd have to make it without shrimp for me, since I'm weird and am not a fan.

  2. That looks so heavenly! It's definitely the kind of salad that I'd enjoy. I wouldn't mind having it for lunch often.

  3. OK I need this salad in my life it sounds absolutely AMAZING I mean shrimp and feta YES PLEASE !

    1. Right? I love it because it is tangy and salty all together.

  4. This looks amazing! I could probably make it but can you come set up the presentation because yours looks flawless. What a great dish to have when company comes over!

  5. I always see an abundance of spinach in the grocery section and never picked one because I really don't know what to do with it. It's not a local green and I am not familiar with it. Since I'm into salad lately, I'll try this one but with a twist because I'm allergic to shrimps.

  6. I think this is an informative post and it is very useful and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed reading this post. big fan, thank you!

  7. I do love a good salad. This recipe looks healthy and yummy
