But, I know that they are very good for us. I was so thrilled to find that Sam’s sells organic baby spinach at an excellent price. That really leaves me with no excuse. Now I’ve got easy salad at a good price. Of course I just dump the spinach into the bowl because that’s one of the things that make spinach salads easier than lettuce. You don’t have to tear or chop the leaves.
But then my husband mentioned that he thinks the leaves are actually a little to big to serve as-is. WHAT? There goes my easy salad plan. But, a friend at church showed me a simple way to cut those leaves. It’s one of those so simple things that I don’t know why I didn’t think of it. (Maybe after you read it, you’ll wonder why I didn’t think of it either!)
Here’s the tip.
Just pour the spinach in the bowl. (She actually did it with spring mix, but I usually buy spinach). Take your handy kitchen shears. Point them down into the spinach and start snipping! Easy, bite-sized spinach leaves.
It is definitely working for me!
