I had some spinach to use up so I searched online and found this recipe on Martha Stewart. This salad turned out to be very quick and simple to make and it made a wonderful and healthy side dish to go with our roasted chicken dinner.
Wilted Spinach Salad with Caramelized Shallots:
- 2-3 tsp olive oil
- 4 shallots, sliced
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
- 3 tsp red wine vinegar
- 1 10 oz bag of baby spinach
How to Make Wilted Spinach Salad with Caramelized Shallots
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the shallots and cook, stirring often for 3-4 minutes until soft. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste and continue to cook, turning the heat down to medium-low for another 4-5 minutes or until the shallots are sticky and golden brown.
Add 1 tablespoon of water and scrape up the brown bits off the bottom of the skillet. Add the mustard and the red wine vinegar and mix until well combined.
Add the bag of spinach to the skillet and toss until coated evenly then serve immediately. Enjoy.
