Spinach Salad with Pears, Cranberries and Toasted Pecans
Ever need a salad that is delish, quick and impressive? This salad has it covered! I asked my sister Laurie for a special salad recipe for Easter dinner and she created this one for me. Winner, winner, spinach salad for dinner! The beautiful thing is, it calls for all the ingredients you have on hand except for the pears and the spinach. And of course, you buy spinach every week don’t you!? We do. Sadly, Gary does not eat it but I can easily eat a bag a week sautéed with freshly ground pepper, sea salt and a squeeze of lemon! It was also a perfect salad to take to our annual Mullaney Timberman Triathlete cabin weekend.
Celebrating Life at the Timberman Triathalon Cabin Weekend
I want to thank sweet Joe Kandiko for taking the photographs of this salad when we were celebrating the Timberman Triathlon. I was going to prepare this blog post and realized I had an award winning photographer coming to the cabin. His adorable wife Georgia and Joe are quite the artistic team. Georgia is only person I would know to paint on a rafting trip.
Georgia has competed in several Timberman Triathlons. Georgia and Joe complement each other so well. They both enjoy art, living on the lake, their beloved children and love being active! I highlighted these award winning artists for Watercolor Month. Check out Joe and Georgia’s art at www.KandikoAndKandiko.com.
Taylor, Quinn, Kevin, Jonathan and Joe competed this year.
I served this salad to 15 athletic, fun God loving people at the Mullaney cabin for the Timberman Triathlon. They liked it and ate more than I thought they would!
Lucky or what…Sarah wanted us to taste test four bottles of champagne for her daughter’s wedding in August.
Interesting results – all the woman all liked one best and the boys all liked one we all did not like at all!
We surprised Ben and celebrated his 24th birthday! When you come to the Mullaney cabin you become family!
It is the special relationships and people we cherish like our special times at the Mullaney cabin! Always remember the most important things in life can’t be seen or touched.
