Very nice recipe, DH added salt but for me it was perfect. I did add sauteed mushrooms because I had them and thought they would go well with the dish (added them with the walnuts and onions), it was a nice addition but definitely not necessary, this is an excellent dish as it stands. I also didnt have spinach leaves, so used green onions to garnish. Lovely recipe, much enjoyed, thank you Kate, one I'll be making again! Made for PRMR tag game
