I wanted to use up my strawberries I bought at the Waverly farmers market and the lovely mesclun too! I went perusing through my latest copy of Cook’s Country and found this!
The goat cheese went WONDERFULLY with the dressing and strawberries…
for 2 servings
10 strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
2 handfuls of greens
1/2 shallot, minced
2 count evoo
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 cup goat cheese, cut into small pieces
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 grapefruit, juiced and peeled (2 strips of zest)
1. Place cheese on plate and freeze until slightly firm, about 15 minutes.
2. Heat oil, zest, shallot, and sugar in Dutch oven over medium-low heat until shallot is softened, about 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat, discard zest, stir in grapefruit juice, and add spinach; cover, allowing spinach to steam until just beginning to wilt, about 30 seconds.
3. Transfer steamed spinach and hot dressing to large bowl. Add pine nuts, strawberries, and cheese and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.
