  • Summary

    This is a take on that 70's classic: Wilted Spinach Salad -- which to me was a childhood favorite. The original was made with bacon, the onions sauteed in bacon grease and the whole mixture poured, hot and sizzling over the unsuspecting spinach. I have lightened it up a bit by removing the bacon and sauteing red onions in olive oil, then pouring that over the spinach. You could add bacon or pancetta to this as well and I'm sure it would be delicious, and a fried or poached egg over top wouldn't be bad either!

    Ingredients

    • 1 small package organic baby spinach
    • 1 large red onion – sliced thin
    • 2 tablespoons e.v. olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
    • extra olive oil for drizzling
    • juice of 1/2 small lemon (a little over a tablespoon)
