                                                        ITALIAN SPINACH SALAD

     Here we have the perfect accent to our spaghetti dinner tonight.  Toss some fresh veggies together and a few spritzes of dressing made with red wine vinegar and olive oil and voila! Something to make the tastebuds dance!


  • 6 cups torn spinach
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced fresh mozzerella cheese (not like the bag of cheese you use on pizza) 
Toss together in large bowl mix together the following ingredients for dressing:

  • 3/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (I use a squeeze bottle of garlic - 1 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp. sat
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil
Whisk ingredients together, chill a few minutes if possible, and spritz or drizzle 1/2 cup over spinach mixture. Serve immediately. (Can add black olives, if desired.)

Serves 8
