    Chef Niki's Note:

    This recipe was a side dish at a restraunt we ate at. I ate so much I couldn't finish my salmon. The spinach is not cooked so the flavor is very fresh. Since finding this recipe we have gone through 5 pounds of spinach!! (in 2 weeks)

      Oh my! This was terrific! I halved the butter, lemon and olive oil, kept the garlic as written. It was just superb! Using the full amount of fats would have been too oily for my taste and more than 2 T of lemon juice would have been too overpowering. This is definitely going to the top of my favorite spinach recipes. Thank you sooo much.

      Even though this recipe was posted 8 years ago, it is timeless. I did not have baby spinach and the spinach I had, contained a lot of dirt. So even though I wasted it several times, I was reluctant to use it without cooking. So I sauteed the spinach leaves slightly and then added the liquid ingredients (butter, lemon, garlic, olive oil). It was perfect and I am sure next time, I will try using young, baby spinach and not cooking it.

      I appreciate this recipe because the spinach doesn't have to be cooked. The lemon was a bit much for me and I thought it took away from the garlic flavor, so next time I will use 1/2 of the lemon juice. Thanks for the recipe!
