Wilted Spinach Salad

Source: Ecological Cooking
Date tried: February 2, 2018
Yield: 4 servings
Time needed: about 15 minutes

Very quick to make and to be served immediately. I discovered this is a love it or hate it salad. The ingredient making a difference is the sesame oil. I love it, my daughter hates it. The other intriguing frill is that the dressing is heated, and poured on hot, slightly wilting the spinach—hence the name. Anyway, it gets a two-thumbs up from me for taste as well as ease of preparation.
