May is known as National Vinegar & National Salad Month, and even though there are only a few days left, we wanted to take advantage of them and celebrate it! Now that the weather has finally warmed up, a nice salad sounds absolutely refreshing – especially since many of us are trying to shed that excess polar vortex weight.
We made a salad with spinach leaves, peppers and cherry tomatoes, and topped it off with a delicious poppy seed dressing, using two of Pompeian Olive Oil’s top-selling products: their Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Pomegranate Infused Red Wine Vinegar. The dressing was a heavenly combination of sweet and tangy, and it was the perfect way to jazz up this salad. There’s no healthier, delightful way to welcome the summer!
Read below for the full poppy seed dressing recipe, and comment below this post for a chance to win a Pompeian Olive Oil & Vinegar prize set!
