Mediterranean Wilted Spinach Salad
Adding sizzling hot oil to the salad at the last minute is a fun technique that really highlights the fresh flavor of the spinach, and makes the leaves silky delicious.
3 c. fresh spinach, tightly packed
2 Tbsp. green onion, thin sliced
1/4 c. crumbled goat or feta cheese
1/4 c. sliced kalamata olives
1 Tbsp. snipped mint
2 tsp. red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small clove garlic, minced or pressed
Combine all of the ingredients except the olive oil and garlic in a large salad bowl.
In a small pan, heat the garlic and olive oil until sizzling hot (stir often to keep garlic from over-browning). Drizzle lightly throughout the salad, and gently toss until the spinach softens.
Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. Serve right away.
