The slightly bitter taste of spinach is offset by the sweet/tartness of the cranberries and the buttery flavor of the pecans.

Ingredients

  • 2 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/2 pounds spinach, coarse stems removed
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup pecans, toasted

Directions

  1. Place the shallots, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a large salad bowl.
  2. Slowly pour in the oil, whisking vigorously until emulsified, and then add the spinach.
  3. Toss to coat and then sprinkle the salad with the cranberries and toasted pecans.
