Wilted Spinach Salad

Here's a quick and easy appetizer for two, or a light meal for one. There are so many wilted spinach salad recipes out there which insist on using bacon, but sometimes it's nice to have something a little healthier, so I swapped out the bacon for sautéed mushrooms. Enjoy this with a glass of fruity white wine.

Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 5 extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cremini mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 5 spinach
  • 1 radicchio, cut into ¼-inch strips
  • 1 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 white wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

In a sauté pan, heat the garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until it begins to sizzle, about 2 minutes. Immediately add the mushrooms and cook for 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from heat.

Place the spinach in a large bowl and pour the garlic-oil mixture with the mushrooms on top. Toss until the spinach is slightly wilted and then add the radicchio, cherry tomatoes, and white wine vinegar. Toss again until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.
