Here's one appie dish that you'd see in a sushi restaurant that's easy to re-create and delicious .... do-able to make at home. Sometimes, I add peanut butter to the dressing too for a Thai flair. Oh my.
Why is it so sensational? Because if I'm going to cook or bake, the requirements are tasty, nutritious and quick.
This salad hits all of those points.
It only requires ONE fresh ingredient - spinach. The rest of the ingredients you may already have in your cupboard. If you don't have sesame oil (we only do because my man has an obsession with Korean cooking!) then avocado or olive oil would work too. Tamari is a fermented version of soy sauce, much healthier for you and tastes very similar - you still get that salt kick!
Ingredients: 1 lb fresh spinach (organic if possible - this is a typically a very highly sprayed vegetable and is usually featured on the Dirty Dozen each year) Dressing: 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar 1 tablespoon sesame oil 1 tablespoon tamari 1 teaspoon honey roasted sesame seeds
Directions: 1 Steam spinach until wilted, drain well. (Remove any large stems before steaming) 2 Mix together dressing ingredients 3 Combine spinach and dressing, top with sesame seeds
Et viola! Lovely side dish for a meal. A large bag of spinach will turn into a small amount for about 2 - 3 people. Easy.
Rock n' roll.
