Paging Popeye

I'd like a helping of health and happiness, please. That's what I'd want to tell the server if I were in a restaurant, but I'm actually in my own kitchen and this is my go-to summertime lunchtime treat: fill a small  to middling serving bowl with fresh green spinach and pile on sliced strawberries. Top with feta cheese, scatter with nuts, drizzle citrus vinaigrette over and grind black pepper on top. Change it up by switching the fruit to juicy peaches and blueberries or chopped cantaloupe and watermelon. Throw some leftover roasted chicken in if you have it. It's easy to make your own simple dressing in a jam jar. Pause to admire your little culinary masterpiece, then dig in and enjoy. Tip the server well.
