Mediterranean Spinach

This spinach recipe helps you to get this super food into your diet very easily. The simple dressing is the perfect complement. You will find that it doesnít need anything else to be great tasting and satisfying.

Mediterranean Spinach Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes

4 medium bunches fresh spinach
1/2 TBS lemon juice
1/2 TBS balsamic vinegar
2 medium cloves fresh garlic, pressed
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
salt & cracked black pepper to taste

  1. Bring lightly salted water to a rapid boil in a large pot. Cut stems off spinach leaves and clean well. This can be done easily by leaving spinach bundled and cutting off stems all at once. Rinse spinach leaves very well as they often contain a lot of soil. Cook spinach in simmering water for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Drain and press out excess water. Toss in rest of ingredients and serve. Make sure you donít toss spinach with dressing until you are ready to serve. Otherwise the flavor will become diluted.

    Serves 2-4
