Spinach and Arugula Citrus Salad with Fennel and Avocado | www.aggieskitchen.com

You know that Honey, Lime and Garlic Vinaigrette recipe I shared with you all yesterday? Well this is the salad that I’ve been enjoying it on all week. This salad came together literally as a mish-mosh of two salad combinations I have been craving – actually three – spinach and orange, fennel and orange, and fennel and arugula. Since I am totally indecisive and have major ADD these days I ended up throwing it all together to use up my ingredients before they withered away. Avocado was invited to the party at the last minute and boy am I glad.

I have been in a major salad (food/cooking/eating?) rut lately. I can’t blame it on the weather (Florida + Winter = a little bit awesome, but don’t worry paybacks are in fall!), but I can blame it on laziness and feeling a little uninspired from food/cooking/eating in general. I am making a huge effort to get out of this rut because honestly, I’m just plain sick of it. I miss cooking, feeling excited about cooking and eating a variety of foods (no offense to crock pot chicken and Greek salad but I am so over you).

I want to eat exciting food!

This Spinach and Arugula Spinach Salad got me a little bit excited. I hope it does the same for you.

Have a great weekend!

    Fennel has become a recent love in my life and I feel like I have lots and lots of catching up to do. This salad looks like a yummy way to make up for lost time!

      It’s funny because I grew up eating fennel salads (an Italian thing), I ate it raw as a snack all the time! I kind of forget about it as I got older! I hope you catch up with lots of fennel eating, its so good! Try it raw with orange segments, olive oil and salt!
