Amish Endive or Spinach Salad

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 10 mins

To make sure the greens are wilted before eating(covering the greens with a hot dressing only partially accomplishes this), drop them into a pot of boiling water. Let tand for 5 - 10 minutes. Then drain leaves, pouring off juice.

I can't believe this recipe has no ratings! I grew up with this at the holidays, but have never made it I needed a recipe, and had a hard time finding this one. It's so delicious!! (I used frozen spinach, thawed and well drained)
