Description

A deliciously rich and flavourful salad with a warm blue cheese dressing. Pairs perfectly with Buffalo-style Pork Ribs (see my TastyKitchen recipe box for the ribs recipe).

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Fresh Spinach Leaves, Washed, Dried And Stems Removed
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ½ whole Small Red Onion, Julienned
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons White Balsamic Vinegar (see Notes)
  • ¼ cups Whipping Cream
  • 3 ounces, weight Blue Cheese, Crumbled
  • ½ cups Walnut/Pecan Pieces, Lightly Toasted
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Arrange the spinach in a large bowl.

Heat the olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add the onions into the hot oil and saute until they are soft. Then add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds more. Add the vinegar and cream to the pan, and bring to a boil. Then immediately remove pan from the heat, add the most of the cheese (save some for garnish) and nuts, stir. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour the warm dressing over the spinach, toss and serve.

Notes:
- Regular (dark) balsamic vinegar makes the dressing darker, but otherwise makes a perfect substitution for the white.
