Green Apple and Raspberry Spinach Salad and Pizza

Today’s post is sponsored by Papa John’s.  All opinions are entirely my own. 

Welp! Our family has big changes on the horizon!  I officially have a preschool graduate!  I will have a second grader, come Friday.  And, we are enjoying our last few days as residents of Cedar Falls, Iowa.   We closed on our new home in Dubuque, Iowa last weekend, and we will officially make the move next week.

Let’s talk about the food situation in our house for just a second.  My freezer is empty except for two bags of frozen vegetables, and I have less than twenty items currently sitting in my fridge.   I have still been buying a few fruits and vegetables, and of course, we have been ordering out dinner a bit too!

Just this weekend when we were in our new home, painting, we ordered pizza from Papa John’s, and I threw together this easy spinach salad!

I downloaded the Papa John’s app on my phone to order this pizza.   Ordering pizza from your phone is super easy, especially when life is crazy.   You can check where the nearest Papa John’s is to your home!

Papa John’s offers traditional crust, thin crust, and gluten-free crust.  We love thin crust in our house and we always have to get Hawaiian pizza!

This Green Apple and Raspberry Spinach Salad was delicious and accompanied our delivery pizza quite well.   Both green apples and raspberries are sweet and tangy and taste great with sweet poppyseed dressing.

Green Apple and Raspberry Spinach Salad


  • 6 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup toasted almonds
  • 1 green apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 6 ounce container raspberries
  • 1/4 cup poppyseed dressing


  1. Place your baby spinach in a bowl.  Arrange the sliced green apples, raspberries, and almonds on top and drizzle on poppyseed dressing.  toss lightly and serve. 

I can’t wait for our move to happen, and to make a recipe for you from my new kitchen!  But right now I am staying put in Cedar Falls, finishing the last week of school with my oldest and prepping our house for the move.  Cleaning things out, still giving things away and making things look nice for the new residents.

Seriously, guys, this app was super easy to use and a great way to get dinner on the table when you’re in a time crunch.  My whole family enjoys pizza from Papa Johns! I hopped on their website to find  Papa John’s Pizza stores near me.
