SPINACH WITH FETA AND OLIVES
Why I Love This Recipe
Quick, easy and nourishing featuring a flavor of the Mediterranean, this side dish is loaded with vitamins A and C. Also try this recipe as a colorful "bed" for broiled chicken or seafood.
Ingredients You'll Need
4 packages (10 ounces each) cleaned, fresh spinach
1 cup (6 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup chopped, canned pitted black olives
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Poke a few holes in the spinach bags and microwave them on high (2 at a time) for 4 minutes, until the spinach is wilted; drain. While the spinach is cooking, toss feta, chopped olives and olive oil in a serving bowl. Add the spinach, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
