Spinach, Apple and Pecan Salad

Share Button

This QUICK and EASY salad is a great companion to almost any meal, especially when you don’t have a lot of time to spare. So pretty much every night:) I love the toasted pecans in it. Yum! Try and eat it immediately as the dressing wilts the spinach overnight. Enjoy this tasty way to get in those veggies:)

    I can't wait to make this! My 4 year old is obsessed with spinach right now… weird, I know. She saw a popeye cartoon. :)

    This looks yum, Amy! You have made me crave spring and my garden even more, especially right now when it looks like a blizzard outside:(. I hope this year's spinach crop is as good as last year's. Can't wait to try this!

    Mmm… that looks good, Amy! I love simple recipes these days. And I am totally jealous of Tammy. The only way my two year old eats spinach is if I disguise it in a green smoothie! :)

However, I just have to let you sisters know that I made an entire meal tonight comprised of all your recipes and it was FANTASTIC. I made this Spinach Salad, with your Chicken/Spinach Stuffed Shells and Macaroni Grill Bread. TO DIE FOR! All of my guests were raving and I gave your blog complete credit. Thanks for all your hard work with this website. I get excited every time I see a new recipe because I know it will be excellent. Keep up the great work and THANK YOU! – Tammy Adams (Arizona)

    Hi, we made this salad tonight and LOVED it so much! It will be in heavy rotation here. :) So glad to try it before trying it with my mother in law this weekend. :) We added some feta cheese and served it with wheat dinner rolls. Thank you for sharing! This is my fourth meal this week from this site and I am loving it. :)

    Amy, this Spinach Salad was fantastic! We had it with dinner tonight, and I really liked it. I loved the toasted pecans in it, and I kept saying to Jed, "Oh, these pecans are so good" until he finally replied, "Yeah, you mentioned:)" I realized I HAD said it like five times. :)haha!
