Spinach, Brie and Walnut Salad

The weather is warming up in Boston and I am very happy about that.  I love outdoor activities, like hiking and running, preferably done without snow and ice.  Today is the running of the Boston Marathon!  Having run a marathon in warm conditions, {I ran the San Diego Rock’n Roll marathon} I feel for those runners today with an expected 88 degree day! Yikes!

Yesterday was warm  and pleasant so… Russ, Brennan, and I, took Lucy on a nice long walk.  It was Lucy’s first official walk off leash! She had so much fun and behaved herself.  Yay Lucy! She is usually not  a rule follower!Warm weather makes me want to eat lighter and one of my favorite light meals is my Mom’s Spinach, Brie and Walnut salad.

A great combination on its own, but certainly can be dressed up with grilled chicken, roasted red peppers and whatever suits you.

Start with baby spinach.

Whip up a simple white wine vinegar and olive oil dressing.

I add small chunks of brie including rind and some toasted walnuts.

Today I added a few baby carrots and some chopped green scallions slices too.  This recipe is so simple, yet fit for a Queen!
