The addition of dates to the classic combination of spinach with mushrooms and bacon, makes this recipe extraordinary.
1/4 c. chopped onions
2 lb. sliced mushrooms
1/2 lb. chopped bacon
1/2 c. chopped dates
1/4 c. olive oil
1/2 c. rice vinegar
1 t. salt
1 T. pepper
2 lb. spinach
- Sauté bacon, onion and olive oil until golden brown
- Add mushrooms, cook 1 minute
- Add dates, vinegar, salt and pepper until warm
- Toss with spinach
Cook's Tip: By adding more or less spinach, you can either serve this as a salad, topped with Cambozola cheese perhaps, or as a side dish to a main course, as pictured above.
