    Default Chiffonade of Spinach

    This comes from the Bush Family Cookbook (which has some wonderful recipes, even though it probably wouldn't be very popular with a lot of people on here!)

    -2 red bell peppers, halved and seeded
    -2 bunches large leaf spinach, stemmed and sliced thinly lengthwise
    -12 pitted Kalamata olives, quartered
    -4 ounces Feta cheese, diced
    -4 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
    -Garlic Lemon Dressing
    -4 tablespoons chopped parsley

    Heat broiler. Place bell peppers cut side down on baking sheet. Broil peppers until skins turn black. Immediately place in brown paper bag and seal to trap steam to help remove roasted skins off peppers easily. Peel and cut into strips and set aside.

    In a large bowl, toss spinach, roasted peppers, olives, cheese, and nuts with dressing.

    Divide among 4 plates and sprinkle generously with chopped parsley.

    Garlic Lemon Dressing
    -8 cloves garlic, roasted
    -Juice of 1 lemon
    -1 cup light olive oil
    -2 tablespoons honey
    -Salt and pepper
    -2 tablespoons chopped parsley

    In a blender, combine garlic, lemon juice, oil, and honey. Pulse, turning blender on and off, to emulsify. Season with salt and pepper, add parsley, and pulse again. (Makes about 1 1/4 cups)

    I was liking it until we got to the honey-nooo. Too sweet for me.

    Only 2 tbs. honey though. I'm thinking when it's mixed with the other stuff it wouldn't be terribly sweet. Or you could test it out first without the honey and see if it really needs it? If anybody makes this please post. I'm not into sweet dressings myself and I'm curious how sweet it actually comes out.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
