GOT SPINACH? HAVE A SALAD!

I can’t say enough about this salad!  The recipe, from Lisa’s blog (Lisa is Cooking),  originated from Donna Hay, the Australian writer who has incredibly beautiful cookbooks, with simple, elegant recipes.  You can find the original recipe here; I’m giving you my own adapted version.

SpinachSaladCRISPY POTATO SALAD
(adapted from Donna Hay)

1 bag of baby spinach
3 small red potatoes, sliced very thin in a mandoline
olive oil spray
1/2 cup grated Parmiggiano-reggiano cheese
2 Tbs sour cream
2 Tbs low fat yogurt
1 Tbs lemon juice
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Prepare the potatoes…
Place the slices on a baking sheet, season with salt and pepper and spray them with olive oil. Place in a 420F oven until they get dark golden spots, turn them over and bake until crispy. Remove from the oven, allow them to cool slightly.

Prepare the dressing…
Mix the sour cream, yogurt, lemon juice, and olive oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Assemble the salad…

In a large serving bowl, mix the spinach with the potato slices and parmiggiano-cheese. Add the dressing right before serving.

Enjoy!

Comments: Don’t be too concerned with measurements, but make more than you think you’ll eat. It will quickly disappear … I imagine that variations with different greens, like baby arugula or a mixture of greens, will also work well….Maybe with crumbled feta or gorgonzola cheese…   A nice salad to serve at your next dinner party!
