Dinner Party - Part 2

  • Bruschetta w/White Beans, Sun Dried Tomatoes & Basil

  • Spinach, feta, raspberry, candied nut salad w/ raspberry vinaigrette

  • Chicken with Goat Cheese and Sundried Tomato Sauce

  • Saffron Rice and Red Pepper Pilaf

  • Strawberry Mascarpone Tart

  • Moving on to the first course. I served a simple spinach, feta, raspberry, and candied pecan salad. This is really simple to make and doesn't require any cooking at all.

    Spinach, Raspberry, and Feta Salad (by me)

    1 package pre-washed spinach (12 oz)
    4 oz feta (reduced fat is fine)
    1 small container raspberries, washed and dried.
    handful of candied pecans or walnuts

    1/3 part raspberry vinegar
    2/3 part olive oil
    salt and pepper to taste

    I probably made about 3/4 of a cup of dressing, but you can play around with this a bit. If you like your salad more acidic, then put a bit more vinegar, and less oil. Its not an exact science and you can't really mess it up.
