DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a deep frying pan or pot that will eventually be able to handle all the spinach being tossed around in it.
  • Toss in the onions and mushrooms and turn down the heat to medium low / low medium. Allow onions and mushrooms to caramelize for approx 30 minutes until onions are soft, transparent and golden stirring occasionally. This is a prime time to get the main course a cookin! These onions can be made well in advance and then reheated for just the moment you want to serve the salad. If the onions start to dry out with the amount of butter used add a little more. 4 Tbsp Butter worked out for me at the heat I caramelized the onions on.
  • Stir in the squirt of anchovy paste (optional), pine nuts (or nut of choice) and the crumbled feta a little sea salt and black pepper for taste with the caramelized onions and mushrooms. Once these are somewhat warm and melted, carefully fold in the spinach leaves until they're all coated, making sure not to cook too long. We don't want them soggy or wilted, just coated and warm. Serve immediately and enjoy!
