I also am a new-ish owner of a salad spinner. I got one at Walmart for $2.97 and it works perfectly. I am not sure how I did without for so long. Goodbye sopping wet papertowels on the counter. I made this salad for lunch: (cannot find the recipe on my computer so here goes)
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. real maple syrup
Whisk together for dressing. Salt and pepper to taste. Add this to spinach or any greens you like, walnuts, extra sharp cheddar cheese cut in chunks and a sliced or diced apple.
Ok, and I just read somewhere about using your waffle iron as a panini press or to cook other things. Has anyone done that?
***edited to add: when I make this at home, I use one packet of artificial sweetener (the Generic by Kroger if you must know). At Starbucks, I get one Splenda for the tall and grande sizes and two Splenda in the Venti. I don't like my tea very sweet so take that into consideration.Pin It
