Grill Time!

Grilled filet, asparagus & shrimp with a huge dose of spinach salad = YUM

Filet is seasoned with salt pepper & a squeeze of lemon. Asparagus is lightly coated with grapeseed oil, salt & fresh lemon. Shrimp is grilled with salt, pepper & a squeeze of fresh lemon.

The spinach salad has an array of veggies, a few raisins, chopped pear, avocado & tossed in my homemade vinegar dressing.

Amy’s Salad Dressing
1/2 squeezed lemon
Dash of balsamic vinegar
3 capfuls apple cider vinegar
Dash of salt
Dash of sugar

Whisk everything together in small bowl. Toss into salad right before serving. Enjoy!
