Spinach Salad with Apples and Cheddar

Spinach Salad with Apples & Cheddar

I'm not bored with eating salads. Not yet, at least.

I'm not sure when it begins to happen, that moment that I am done done done with eating another salad green but so far, so good. I find with so many different salad dressings and combinations of ingredients together for the salad, it staves off the boredom of eating greens.

I wasn't sure if my hubby would go for the green onion salad dressing but he was pleasantly surprised, as I was with it. I also thought that the grated cheddar added an interesting touch.

Have a super weekend folks!
