Fresh Portabello Mushroom, Tomato, and Spinach Salad:

If you're looking for something that's healthy and can be thrown together in a matter of minutes, here's you recipe!

The garlic and scallions lend a lot of flavor to the already delicious portabello mushrooms, and the tomatoes add a nice touch of acidity and color. The white balsamic vinaigrette also compliments the salad, and don't forget about the spinach, which adds to the overall nutrition of the dish.

I hope that you're all having a wonderful weekend. My life hasn't been all that exciting lately, but I did go house hunting today (to rent a place, not ready to buy anything just yet)....and now I've fallen in love with this cute and itty, bitty house, with a teeny, tiny kitchen. Not sure how my roommate and I will get all of our stuff in there, but of course, love always finds a way, so..........if it's meant to be, we will make it work. :) I'm crossing my fingers for now.........

I'll keep you posted.

1 large tomato, sliced
