  • About

Blanched spinach is a great gift to the cook, for it will stay happily in the fridge for a day to be revived in boiling water to serve hot It is also very good in its own right as a cold salad, simply dressed with olive oil and a tiny squeeze of lemon juice. Not too much, though, as this will discolour the spinach and one of the nicest things about it is the vivid green.

Ingredients

  • two 450g/1 lb bags of spinach
  • about 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
