Balsamic Spinach Salad with Mushrooms, Onions, and Feta
Not long ago I posted Spinach Salad with Bacon and Feta, which was really yummy. Then last week I was cooking dinner for my dad and stepmother. I had some spinach and wanted to make spinach salad for them, but she doesn’t eat pork, so I came up with this version which has red onions and sauteed mushrooms instead of the bacon.
3-4 handfuls fresh spinach, washed and dried
1/4 red onion, cut into thin strips about 1 1/2 inches long
6-8 mushrooms, sliced (I used brown Cremini mushrooms, also called “baby Bella”
2 T extra virgin olive oil, plus more for sauteeing veggies
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp. garlic puree or crushed fresh garlic
2 T crumbled Feta cheese
Arrange salad on 2 serving plates, crumble feta over, and serve.
