Wilted Spinach with Dried Cherries and Pine Nuts

Wilted Spinach with Dried Cherries and Pine Nuts

This dish was a big hit with all of us. We loved the sweet and tangy cherries tossed with the wilted spinach and toasted pine nuts. The balsamic vinegar gave such a great flavor boost to this side dish. I have a feeling I will be making this more often!

Wilted Spinach with Dried Cherries and Pine Nuts

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add the washed spinach, dried cherries, and pine nuts then toss often for 1 minute. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Keep tossing while it cooks until just wilted. Remove from heat and serve immediately. Drizzle more balsamic vinegar, if desired. Enjoy.
