Mixed super salad w. butter beans, hokkaido and spinach

Mixed salad w. spinach, pumpkin and butter beans

Oh my, the sun is shining again!! It is absolutely amazing how you can feel this change throughout all of your body. From one day to another my level of energy has shifted completely. I am smiling all the time, I have crazy urges to wash my windows, buy colourful flowers, wear sneakers and leather jacket, go down town to drink coffee and enjoy the sunshine, run every morning and I am not getting tired in the evening (resulting in watching a lot of ‘dead walking’) and still I wake up no later than 7 am… all in all totally awesomeness is once again entering my life. Spring ♥

Mixed salad w. spinach, pumpkin and butter beans

In my last salad post I was already all about the beans. How much I love beans and especially when in salads. I briefly mentioned a version of a salad that I had served for my girlfriends, and I gotta say that version has been made, tasted, changed, improved, tasted again and now it has become my absolute favourite salad and first pick for almost any occasion.
It just seems to have it all. And you can make it with all sorts of beans, from black to chickpeas, and it still rocks. The same goes for most of the other ingredients, if you haven’t got spinach then use arugula, no hazelnuts use walnuts and no goats cheese use another kind of cheese, and I promise you it will still be great!

Even though the salad has been filling me with nutrient packed calories throughout the last couple of cold winter months, I still declare this an exceptionally good salad to celebrate the coming of spring with. The spinach, apples and parsley makes it fresh and ‘springy’, but still the hokkaido and beans provide you with the filling and comforting flavours and textures you need in order to feel full and satisfied.

In the spirit of spring I have made some small improvements on the blog. The recipes (at least all the new once) are now in a print friendly version. Just tab the print button and you get a clean recipe. And if you haven’t already noticed; the blog has now gotten a little heart favicon logo in front of the web address, so cute and very much in the honor of the food we all share and love!
