I’m always amazed by the simple things in life that you don’t think of on your own but make so much sense once you know about them! And that is exactly how I felt the first time I tried fresh herbs on a salad (at a restaurant). I love to grow and eat fresh herbs but never even considered adding them to a green salad for some extra flavor. So (now that I know better!), I added some thyme to this Spinach Salad recipe below, and it was a fabulous addition. Some other tender herbs to experiment with on your salads are tarragon, dill, parsley, basil, and mint. Enjoy!

One of my favourite salads!! Soooo healthy, thanks for posting. Found you only today, follow you now, but will have to make time to read a lot of your pages. I like of course what I see and read. Carina
I love playing around with herbs in salads. Cilantro is on my list of favorites, and sometimes mint. This sounds like a really yummy salad and dressing! Thanks!
For years, my “fancy for guests” salad has been spinach with pecans (or walnuts), avocado and mandarin oranges. With a little vinaigrette using the juice from the can of oranges. Never leftovers.
Love herbs in salad, but I also never thought to add them until I had it at a restaurant. Cilantro is another good one… for those who like cilantro, of course!
