This recipe is so easy to prepare and can be easily varied depending on the vinegar used. I used a light Balsamic vinegar along with fresh basil. Made a great side dish with fish and Lemon Rice Lemon Rice.

very good but I used balsamic, and although I'm a HUGE fan of balsamic, it didn't taste right with the spinach and parsely.

Who would have thought that sherry wine vinegar would be so agreeable with steamed spinach? I made as written using parsley and a really nice sherry wine vinegar. Thanks so much for the Very healthy and easy side.
