Ingredients

  • 12 ounces fresh spinach, (see Note)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced shallot
  • 1/3 cup sherry vinegar, or red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked or hot paprika, (optional)
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped black olives, such as Kalamata

Preparation

  1. Place spinach in a large bowl.
  2. Place shallot, vinegar and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until the liquid is nearly evaporated. Add almonds and paprika (if using) and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Stir in broth and olives and bring to a simmer. Immediately pour the dressing over the spinach and toss until slightly wilted.

Tips & Notes

Note: Baby spinach is immature or young spinach—it’s harvested earlier than large-leaved mature spinach. We like the sturdy texture of mature spinach in cooked dishes and serve tender, mild-flavored baby spinach raw or lightly wilted. Baby and mature spinach can be used interchangeably in these recipes (yields may vary slightly); be sure to remove the tough stems from mature spinach before using.

Weights & Measures

10 ounces trimmed mature spinach=about 10 cups raw

10 ounces baby spinach=about 8 cups raw
