Ingredients

12 oz fresh spinach (see note)½ cup thinly sliced shallot⅓ cup sherry vinegar or red-wine vinegar2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil2 Tbsp sliced almonds¼ tsp smoked or hot paprika (optional)⅓ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable oil¼ cup chopped black olives, such as Kalamata

Directions

1. Place spinach in a large bowl.

2. Place shallot, vinegar and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until the liquid is nearly evaporated. Add almonds and paprika (if using) and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Stir in broth and olives and bring to a simmer. Immediately pour the dressing over the spinach and toss until slightly wilted.

Note: Baby spinach is immature or young spinach—it’s harvested earlier than large-leaved mature spinach. We like the sturdy texture of mature spinach in cooked dishes and serve tender, mild-flavored baby spinach raw or lightly wilted. Baby and mature spinach can be used interchangeably in these recipes (yields may vary slightly); be sure to remove the tough stems from mature spinach before using.
