Wilted Spinach Salad

posted in: Recipes, Salads, Sides | 3

Last weekend we took a trip to visit my grandmother, who I haven’t seen in a year. We also got to visit with my aunt and cousin, who I haven’t seen in almost 4 years, and I met my newest baby cousin Mary Rose for the first time. Saturday night we stayed with Jim’s brother and sister-in-law. They sent us home with piles of produce from their garden on Sunday and I made this salad as soon as we got home.

It was a great weekend, capped off by a great meal.

8 ounces fresh spinach, washed and torn into bite sized pieces
1/3 cup carrot slices

Place the vegetables in a serving bowl.

In a small saucepan, heat all the dressing ingredients and bring to a boil. Immediately pour dressing over the salad vegetables and toss well.

  2. Are the little orange round thing in your picture carrots? I’ve never seem them in that shape. The vegetables look so fresh and tasty.

  3. Yes, they’re carrots! Aren’t they cute? That’s their normal shape.
