Warm Spinach Salad with a Poached Egg

We go through a lot of spinach in our house. Almost all the juice I make has some spinach in it, and I also make a lot of spinach salads. But because I have been eating a lot of spinach salad lately, I had gotten a bit bored with it.

I remembered that I used to make a warm spinach salad. Basically, I saute some onions and add olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the still warm pan to make a warm dressing. Then I pour the warm dressing over the spinach, which slightly wilts the spinach leaves. I usually top the salad with a poached egg.

  • Spinach (however much you'd like to eat)
  • 1 small red onion, cut into half rings
  • olive oil (1 part)
  • balsamic vinegar (2 parts)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Parmesan cheese
  • eggs, poached
Saute the onions in a bit of oil until they are soft. Then add one part olive oil and two parts balsamic vinegar as well as salt and pepper to taste. Pour the warm mixture over the washed spinach. Toss with Parmesan cheese to taste. Top the salad with a poached egg.

A totally unrelated question: What is your favorite Halloween candy? I'm in the mood for something sweet right now...

Be well,
