Quick....prewashed baby spinach and tasty dressing
"I used splenda, with frozen spinach(frozen was all i had in house)..served it with pinto beans and it turned out great..maybe a bit sweeter than I expected but my roommate ate it all and she doesn't even like beans. She said the contrast to the beans made them a good combination and the beans enjoyable.. I also topped with tomato and green onion. Going to try it with fresh greens next. Cant wait :))"- Petraspot

KendraCooks 5 months agoThis is a classic and a fave of mine, in this version the Spenda makes it tangy and a little sharp tasting, just the way I like it!

ReyV 2 years agoMade it per the instructions, and it was awesome! Well, maybe I went a little heavy on the garlic, but I liked it that way. Added a little feta, which didn't change the flavor much; just added depth. Yum.

memerson4 3 years agogreat and simple recipe! I swapped out the splenda for 1 tablespoon honey, left off the boiled egg and added some red pepper flakes for a little more bite. Served over plain couscous and topped with balsamic marinated salmon. This basic recipe will be one of my regulars!
