Wilted Spinach Salad with Hazelnuts Goat Cheese and Golden Raisins Ingredients

Easy Wilted Spinach Salad with Hazelnuts Goat Cheese and Golden Raisins

  • makes 4 servings
  • about ¾ pound baby spinach leaves + 4 to 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts (also known as filberts)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (about 1 good-sized clove)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese (a 5-ounce package)
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Method

  • 1. Place The Spinach Leaves In A Large Bowl. Break Them Into Bite-Sized Pieces, If Necessary, And Remove The Stems (Or Not, Depending On Your Preference).
  • 2. Pour The Olive Oil Into A Medium-Small Skillet And Place It Over Low Heat. Add The Hazelnuts And Cook, Stirring Intermittently, For 5 To 8 Minutes, Or Until They Begin To Turn Golden. Add The Garlic During The Last Minute Or So, Cooking It Slightly But Not “Frying” It. (Browning The Garlic Causes It To Taste Unpleasantly Bitter.)
  • 3. Drizzle This Hot Mixture Directly Over The Spinach, Scraping In As Much Of The Oil As You Can. (You Can Also Toss Some Of The Spinach Back Into The Hot Pan, Stirring It Around To Swab Up Any Extra Oil Left Behind.) Use Tongs To Toss The Spinach Until It Is Completely Coated With The Oil, And The Nuts And Garlic Are Well Distributed. Sprinkle With The Salt As You Toss. Add The Raisins And Goat Cheese, And Mix Well.
  • 4. At The Very End, Sprinkle In The Vinegar And Toss Until It Is Thoroughly Distributed. Serve Immediately, Passing A Pepper Mill.
