I never much liked spinach when it was served to me in the past. However, I really like this recipe.
1/3 cup dried apricots, snipped into little pieces
1 Tab. olive oil
1 clove minced or thinly sliced garlic
4 tsp. balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tab toasted slivered almonds
In a large bowl combine spinach and apricots; set aside.
In a 12 inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic in hot oil until golden brown. Stir in vinegar. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.
Add the spinach mixture to the pan. Return the pan to heat and toss mixture for 1 minute or until the spinach is just wilted.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle almonds on top. Serve Immediately.
