Spinach and Bell Pepper Salad

This salad was created entirely based on the great sales on produce at Kroger. For whatever reason, organic baby spinach was $1.79 a pound. This is an amazing deal, especially when you are hosting a party for 12. Red, yellow and orange bell peppers were also on sale for $1 each. This entire salad was made for under $5 for 12 servings, you cannot beat that! Everyone raved about the salad, the sweetness of the peppers contrasted beautifully with the bite from the dijon vinagretter.

1 pound baby spinach, washed
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 orange bell pepper, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil

Dressing:
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 450. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Toss the bell pepper slices with the olive oil, salt and pepper and place a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast for 7 minutes and cool for 10 to 15 minutes.

Combine all dressing ingredients, except oil, in a mini chop processor. Stream the olive oil in to emulsify. Toss dressing with the spinach. Top spinach with the bell pepper slices, serve.
