Lemony Spinach Sauté with Heirloom Tomatoes and Feta Cheese

Lemony Spinach Sauté with Heirloom Tomatoes and Feta Cheese

This is my new favorite way to make spinach. I loved the sweet heirloom tomatoes with the tangy lemon and salty feta. This side dish took just a couple of minutes to make and paired very nicely with the chicken and rice dishes I served it with. I am wishing there were leftovers so I could eat them tomorrow.

How to Make Lemony Spinach Sauté with Heirloom Tomatoes and Feta Cheese

Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the tomatoes and onion, then cook for 4  minutes, stirring often, until the onion is tender and the tomatoes are softened. Add the spinach in big handfuls and the lemon juice, tossing constantly with tongs for a minute or so until all the leaves are just wilted.

Remove from the heat; Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle the top with the feta. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
