TwoFaced: Spinach

"TwoFaced Tuesdays" is a joint venture between CupcakesOMG! and Jenna from The Paleo Project. Each week, we select one secret ingredient and put our own paleo spin on it. You can catch up on the entire series here. Also, if you have any special ingredient requests, you can always tweet us (@CupcakesOhMG and @ThePaleoProject) using the hashtag #TwoFacedTuesday.
Remember that time I said I hated salad? Okay, well, I do not hate THIS salad. This salad, that I made with spinach...
...proscuitto...
...cantaloupe...
...avocado...
...and walnuts.

This salad, that I topped generously with my Paleo Dijon Vinaigrette:
This salad, that tastes like the most delicious Italian panini you've ever eaten in your entire life...but without the bread.
This salad, that I wish I could eat every single day. And I mean it.
This salad, that I implore you to make as soon as possible. 
I mean, I said implore. That should really be all the reason you need.

I know Jenna did something divine with spinach for her TwoFaced recipe. You can check it out here!

Those ingredients really do make for such an exceptional turnout! The spinach is lucky it was even invited.

Gayla said...

WoW! You made that! And I made you. Therefore, I made that salad. Right? Hahaha!

I'm so confused by the cantaloupe, but I'll take your word for it. Anything with avocado sounds good to me!

Wil Harris said...

Wow, this salad looks so pretty and it's very colorful. I might just try this! Instead of the cantaloupe, I might use pickles. For some reason I have to have pickles in my salad. Thanks for sharing.

Cantaloupe on salad. Brilliant! I'm a little nervous about the cantaloupe and avocado combination, but I trust you!

Stephanie said...

I am beyond excited that you made and posted this salad recipe! I love cantelope and prosciutto together but never know how to make a meal out of it. I also just bought WAY too much prosciutto for a pasta recipe and usually just end up throwing out the leftover when it goes bad and I didn't use it! Now I can use it for this!

Ambyr said...

I have a major prosciutto obsession. The prosciutto mixed with the melon and avocado looks delish!
