Chianti's Spinach Salad


I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam. toot! toot! 

Sorry, I don't know what came over me there.  It's that old association thing.  I see spinach, I hear Popeye. 

When I was a kid that can of spinach that Popeye muscled open never particularly got my cravings revved up. Nope, never. But my oh my, how things have changed.  I kind of have a thing now for fresh baby spinach.  Bonus of bonuses, 'cuz it's really, really good for us.

Now I do crave spinach.  Spinach salad to be precise.  Eon's ago my husband and I owned and operated a fine little restaurant in Kelowna called Chianti's.  One of Chianti's most popular menu items, hands down, was Spinach Salad.  Mmmm.....mmm.....mmmm....... a damn fine way to get my spinach fix!
