When it comes to eating out, I love trying new places. This place I was in the mood for a good hearty salad and I was not disappointed!

Last night I had the fabulous opportunity to get an overnight at the Oxford Casino Hotel. For pleasure and for work. But honestly, it NEVER feels like work coming here. If you have not checked out the new Oxford Casino Hotel, you are insane! To have this in our backyard and not take advantage; shame on you! Really though it is a fun escape from the kids and life for a night and you could win big bucks too. Be warned, after reading this and seeing the food porn photo; you will be hungry!

Now with the new hotel comes a fantastic restaurant. The Ox Pub is relaxed, an unwind, and delicious place in the Oxford Casino Hotel. I have had a few dinners there, everything from Filet Mignon to chicken Pops. Last night after I settled into my luxurious room I came down to get dinner. I wanted to try something different, lighter, and with greens. I ordered the Spinach Salad with grilled chicken. It also had gorgonzola cheese, candied pecans, cranberries, pickled red onions with a red wine vinaigrette. OMG it was a flavor explosion in my mouth. The chicken along with it gave the salad that little extra protein I needed and the sweet with the salty is so yummy. I will dream about this salad for weeks to come! Maybe I should live at the Oxford Casino Hotel. #LOL
