Sooo super yummy and refreshing, this Chilled Sesame Spinach hits the spot!!
I found this recipe on WholeLiving.com and had all the ingredients on hand.
· Coarse salt
· 2 pounds spinach, stems trimmed, washed
· 1 1/2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
· 1 1/2 tablespoons naturally brewed soy sauce
· 1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
· 1 1/2 tablespoons mirin (rice wine)
· 3 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
1. Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; season with salt. Add spinach, and cook just until wilted, about 30 seconds. Drain immediately in a colander, and plunge into prepared ice bath. Let spinach cool completely, about 30 seconds; drain again. Using your hands, squeeze excess water out of spinach, and transfer to a work surface. Coarsely chop spinach, and place in a medium bowl; set aside.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and mirin. Add dressing and sesame seeds to the spinach; mix to combine.
Happy healthy eating! xoxo
