Spinach, Bacon, and Sweet Potato Salad From the Runner's World Cookbook



Yup, it's salad time!  When the weather is warm, there is nothing better than a big ol salad!  One of my favorite things about salads is that you can't mess them up! in actuality, I usually end up making my own salad recipes out of my head.  I don't really have a recipe, but they are just certain ingredients that I have found go well together. I should share some of them sometime, but for now, I'm going to share this recipe for Spinach, bacon, and sweet potato salad from the Runner's World cook book.  And like I said, you don't have to follow the recipe to the tee. Just use the same ingredients and you get the idea, right? Enjoy!

    1. I actually made a sweet potato salad last year that was much like regular potato salad that you would make for a picnic. It was quite tasty!

  5. I love how colorful this is! I'm the same way about salads, I just tend to throw things together depending on what I have on hand.

  7. Ohhhh, that looks so good! I'm with you, sometimes I just throw a bunch of healthy stuff together and hope for the best, lol! Sweet potatoes or avocado are great additions for heartiness. Sorry I missed this week's linkup. Will be back next week!

  10. That looks amazing - I love the RW Cookbook. I make a salad with apples, craisins, feta cheese, walnuts and balsamic vinaigrette.

  11. This actually looks pretty good! My favorite salads are always fresh, and if possible from my own garden. I plant several types of lettuce and spinach and several of the veggies to put on salads. I love it, but I always grow way more then anyone in my family can possibly eat, LOL

    1. I would love to have my own garden, but realistically I know I wouldn't take care of it. I barely remember to water the plants in my house!
