Nicole is one of our Lacrosse parents. We had a lovely end of the season Award “pitch-in” dinner. Nicole showed up with this AMAZING salad. So in good Isabelle fashion I asked for the recipe….not in a subtle quiet way but a direct reply to all email that I was looking for the recipe….unless it was top-secret (but we all know I wasn’t about to back down that quietly).
I got the recipe and her blessing to share it with you my wonderful amazing fantastic readers! <3
I am/was a soccer player, therefore Lacrosse is foreign territory to me. I know NOTHING about Lacrosse. Mind you, I was a soccer mom before I became a Lacrosse mom. I may have overstepped my bound being a soccer mom so it’s best I stay a Lacrosse Mom.
Here’s why I need to be a Lacrosse Mom: when Sunshine was playing soccer, she would be the back up goalie. Once while she was in the goal, I kept telling her (from the side line as a super shark soccer mom…not proud) to do this or do that…etc…she was paying NO attention to me. NONE. So finally I said: “Can’t you hear me?” She screamed (and I mean screamed for everyone to hear): “Yeah MOM I can hear you! The whole world can hear YOU”. I kept my trap shut after that and even now at Lacrosse you will find me in the cheering section: “way to go girls! Keep up the good work girls! Awesome! Great! Amazing! I love this game!! ….”
I have no clue what I am doing!
But I know a delicious salad when I eat one! ;)
For the salad:
1 9-ounce bag Baby spinach leaves (about 6 cups)
1 lb. container strawberries, sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup sugar (mine was shy of 1/2 cup…trying to lower our sugar intake!)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
