Food Network Favorites: Spinach Salad with Honey-Brown Butter Dressing
A very simple and tasty salad from the Tyler Florence chapter in Food Network Favorites. Just sauté some shallots and butter, add honey and vinegar, and toss. The end result is a yummy wilted salad.
If you have a mini-chopper, you can make fast work of the shallots. Watch the butter carefully, since it can go from brown to burned very quickly.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: about 5 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
4 Tbsp butter
1 shallot, chopped
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp honey
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 loosely packed cups fresh spinach (about a 6-oz. bag)
Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook until shallot is tender and butter is light brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in vinegar, honey, and salt and pepper to taste.
Pour the desired amount of dressing over the spinach in a bowl and toss. Serve immediately.
