Easy Spinach Salad

Last week I went out of town for a few days to attend an event with Thermador. I had an amazing time and will write a post about my trip soon. While I was gone, Josh made this easy spinach salad for dinner. I am pretty sure he ordered pizza to go with his salad, but at least he got his veggies in:)

Josh used what we had in our refrigerator to create his side salad. He added tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, red peppers, and Atheno’s black peppercorn feta cheese. He drizzled balsamic vinegar and olive oil over his green salad and that was it. This salad is easy and goes well with any meal-even take out pizza ๐Ÿ™‚

While I was on my Thermador trip, Josh started our kitchen remodel. Yes, you heard me right, Two Peas and Their Pod is getting a new kitchen! I am very excited, but a little nervous. Our house is a construction zone and will be for a couple of months. I am trying to keep the end goal in mind so I can survive the kitchen remodel. Luckily, we are remodeling in the summer so we can grill out and eat simple salads. Our neighborhood has also started a sign up sheet to have the “cooking couple” over for dinner. We will do the cooking, we just need to use everyone else’s kitchens, works out nicely for us and them:)  I will be posting updates along the way, so stay tuned!

Tomorrow is the last day to vote for Two Peas and Their Pod in the BlogLuxe Awards. We are nominated in the Tastiest Blog category. You can vote today and tomorrow. Go vote now! We are honored to be nominated and appreciate your support.

  1. Salads are so easy and filling for the summer! I’ll have to look for the Black Peppercorn Feta ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. the salad looks so refreshing. i grew-up eating feta cheese, so any recipe with feta cheese has won my heart over. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. How exciting you’re remodeling your kitchen – I’m already looking forward to before and after pics! And I’m impressed your hubby made such a refreshing salad – mine doesn’t eat them unless I make them!

  4. Go Josh Go!! Feta cheese is one of my most favorite ingredients ever. Congrats on your kitchen re-model….xo

  5. Gorgeous! I love salads like this! I’ve not seen black peppercorn feta, it sounds wonderful!

  6. I really love simple salad ideas like this. it’s so easy to forget how nice some fresh veggies and feta can be.

  7. Yay for your coming-soon new kitchen! And yay for grills. We gave our only grill away in Kansas and I’m missing it bad!

  8. Kitchen remodel is FUN. took about 2 months for ours. Used convection oven, electric skillet, microwave. AND the grill, too. Have fun!!

  9. I think it’s so great that your neighbors are inviting you to cook in their kitchens while yours is being remodeled… and I can’t wait to see what your brand new kitchen looks like! I hope you’ll share.

  10. What a fun idea–I wish you lived in my neighborhood and could come cook with me ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Looks like a lovely salad! I can assure you my husband does not eat anything that healthy when I’m not around. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Mmmm I LOVE spinach! I eat a spinach salad every day at work ๐Ÿ™‚ Good way to get a ton of nutrients in!

  13. 5 stars
    The spinach salad was speechless thank you for your assistance impressive very tasteful. I will recommend this to my family members

  14. A couple of observations. First, adding the feta is brilliant. It adds a different element of flavor and texture that is amazing. I do believe that your choice of Feta could be different. Atheno’s cheese is “greek style,” and they have not managed to get the style right. I highly recommend that you select real greek feta if you can find it. The flavor is far superior. If you like it with black pepper, grind some fresh and add. I warmed up the oil and then very gently cooked the red onion to take the sharp edge off and added the pepper flakes. When it was cooling down, I added the balsamic vinegar. It was amazing. If you are an olive lover, add some kalamata olives to the salad and a nice grind of fresh pepper.
