Fresh Spinach-Basil Salad
6 cups torn fresh spinach 2 tsp. Extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup torn fresh basil 1 small clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. Orange juice 2 tbsp (1/2 ounce) shaved Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. Rice wine vinegar
In a large bowl, combine the spinach and basil. In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, vinegar, oil and garlic; mix well. Toss the spinach and basil with enough dressing to lightly coat the leaves. Place the greens on a platter and sprinkle with the Parmesan.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Chef’s note: To shave Parmesan cheese, use a vegetable peeler to cut small, thin strips of cheese. The cheese will have a distinctive appearance, and you’ll get the most flavor from it.
