• Two 6 oz bags of Fresh Spinach (make sure it is washed; if not rinse and dry thoroughly)
• 1/2 of a medium red onion sliced thin
• 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries (rinsed and cleaned)
• 11 oz can mandarin oranges drained (I do not use the entire can but close)
• 1/2 cup raspberry vinaigrette (You can add more or less to taste)
• 1/2 cup roasted pecans (optional)
1. In a bowl, combine vinaigrette & onion
2. Add spinach and toss and coat well
3. Add fresh fruit and mix throughout
4. Top with roasted pecans
Note: The acid from the fruit and vinaigrette will cause the spinach to wilt; prepare the day of the event and refrigerate. It may last up to 48 hours afterwards.
1) 1 tablespoon of butter (feel free to substitute with olive oil)
2) 2 large or extra large eggs
3) 1 tablespoon of half and half or heavy cream
4) 8 large raw shrimp (cut in half if you desire)
5) 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (or white cheddar—feel free to add more.)
6) 1 cup fresh spinach (washed)
7) Old Bay seasoning or equivalent (I’m a big fan of Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning)
8) Pinch of Cayenne Pepper (optional)
9) Salt and Pepper to taste
1) Clean shrimp and toss lightly in Old Bay and Cayenne Pepper; put to the side.
2) Scramble two eggs with cream; put to the side. Add salt, pepper (Keep in mind the butter may have salt and so do the shrimp)
3) Melt butter in nonstick pan. Fire should be medium high
4) Add shrimp. Toss until pink. Add fresh spinach and toss lightly. Try not to overcook.
5) Add egg mixture; You may have to rotate pan to ensure egg is evenly distributed.
6) As it starts to solidify, add cheese. Carefully fold over and remove from fire.
(I like soft eggs. Cook to your preference.)
