Why I Love This Recipe
My friend Monica taught me how to make this salad. I love serving it with broiled fish on top.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 bag clean spinach, stemmed and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chopped scallions or chives
1 package ram noodles (crushed and omit spice pack)
1/2 stick butter
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
For the salad:
1. Stem spinach, chop chives, and toss together in a large bowl.
2. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat, sauce noodles, sesame seeds and pecans until golden toasted. Cool.
3. Toss spinach with toppings and make dressing.
Put soy sauce, olive oil, sesame oil, balsamic vinegar and sugar in a jar and shake well to combine. Pour over salad.
