Spinach salad with broccoli and dried cranberries
Recipe: Spinach salad with broccoli and dried cranberries
This is a variation on a recipe I found in an old Bon Appétit. My goal was to combine the salad and a side dish all into one. Bingo.
Serves 6 - can be doubled
4 cups broccoli florets
1/4 red wine vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1 garlic clove minced (jar garlic will work fine)
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
6 Tbl dried craisins (dried cranberries, sweetened)
1 bag of prewashed baby spinach
Steam the broccoli for 4 minutes. Plunge in ice water to stop the cooking. (I just fill my sink and put in ice cubes). Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Whisk vinegar, honey and garlic in the blender to emulsify. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. You'll have to whiz it again in the blender so it's mixed before pouring on salad.
When ready to serve put spinach in bowl. Toss spinach with dressing. Top with onions and then broccoli and craisins.
Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
