Apple Spinach Salad and Apologies

I owe you all an apology. Its been over 10 days since my last post, and I'm still not done with the truckload of homework that has been up-ended on top of me. My head is out of the rubble now, but its going to be a little while before my hands are free so I can write about the really awesome soup recipe that I came up with this week (but don't worry, its worth waiting for!).

So I'm very sorry but I don't have a recipe today-instead I have a couple pictures of my lunch from Sunday. And a list for apple spinach salad. I wont call it a recipe because it is really just a vague idea that I ate the other day. Enjoy!

1 crisp tart delicious apple (from my beloved farmers market)

2 generous handfuls of organic spinach (farmers market again!)

About 1/2 cup diced organic celery (trucked in from a mono-crop operation in California)

1 tbsp raisins

1 tbsp dried cranberries

1 tbsp sunflower seeds (toasted for flavour!)

Some lemon or orange zest if you are feeling in a zesty mood.

Mix together. Douse with lemon juice, honey, salt and a spritz of olive oil, perhaps a touch of minced rosemary. Or try it with my Dijon-olive oil dressing. Yum!

Sometimes the best salads are the ones that are thrown together with a little bit of this and a little bit of that!

Especially when you have about 10 minutes to cook or else the homework on your desk will explode and cover you with little bits of paper and due dates....
