Purple potatoes are popping up everywhere.

I often think I live under a rock.

But I don’t.

I’m in the freaking heart of Manhattan eating purple potatoes, people.

It doesn’t get much better than this.

Does it?

I sure hope not.

I’m tossing them into a bunch of spinach salad recipes this week (they’re all simple salad recipes) they’re all delish and healthy, of course.


Anyway, this easy salad is soaring with fiber and good-for-you-ingredients like omega 3 rich walnuts and iron-rich spinach along with fiber-filled pretty purple potatoes.

This dish is almost too pretty to eat so I’m going to warn you.

If you’re having a dinner party or you have guests coming over- this is one of this dishes you wanna make to impress them. Or if you’ve gotta date and you’re in the mood for cooking, this is a winner.

Crunchy walnuts, silky smooth spinach and tender potatoes make this a plate of heaven. Serve in a large salad bowl tossed together or present it on a large platter in a single layer.

Get creative- either way it tastes delish and will wow your taste buds.

It’s a fun dish to dive into right before all the comfort food cravings start hitting you next month- plus all the holiday treats that will be staring you in the face BIG Time in about 3 weeks.


Get ready for that.

I don’t know if you call it willpower or what but when you’ve got a bowl of fiber in your belly, you’re a lot less likely to reach for (or give into) sweets.

Just sayin’.
