|Spinach Salad+Frittata=a perfect summer meal|
The air is still hot and heavy and fall is definitely absent from the gentle breeze, but I suppose it can be present in my heart. Before I dive into the dreams of golden, cooler days, I will share with you this very summery salad. Sweet, crunchy, tangy and bejeweled with summer's last berries.
