Spicy Spinach Salad

Makes 4 servings

 

Spicy Spinach Salad My earliest memory of spinach was in my soup, but since then I have discovered that wilted spinach can make a wonderful salad, especially when you serve it with a dressing spiked with cider vinegar and chile garlic sauce.

 

8 ounces baby spinach
1/2 red bell pepper,
   seeded and thinly sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped mint
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped cilantro

Dressing
2 tablespoons cooking oil
3 ounces chinese sausages (lop cheong),
   thinly sliced diagonally
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon chile garlic sauce

 

Wash the spinach and remove the tough stems. If the spinach leaves are large, tear into smaller pieces. Place the spinach in a salad bowl. Add the bell pepper, onion, mint, and cilantro; toss to mix.

Place a pan over high heat until hot. Add the oil, swirling to coat the sides. Add the sausages; stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add the vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and chile garlic sauce; cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.

Pour the hot dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Allow the spinach to wilt before serving.
