I cook with and serve spinach quite a bit in my family. Personally, I’m wild about the flavor of spinach and love its versatility. The fact that it’s so nutritious (loaded with vitamins A and C) is just icing on the cake. In fact, I’m making creamed spinach for supper tonight.
Below is a Spinach Spread that’s excellent served with crackers, coarsely chopped vegetables, and/or pita wedges.
Spinach Spread Recipe
1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp hot sauce
sprinkle of black pepper
After the spinach has thawed completely, drain well. Press the spinach between paper towels until its just barely moist. You want to get as much of the moisture out of the picture as possible!
Combine the spinach with the remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover and let it chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours (at least 2).
Yield: 1 cup
