Low-Glycemic Wilted Spinach Salad with Feta

Having a side salad every day with lunch or dinner definitely isn’t a bad habit to start. Salads are healthy and low-glycemic. And you can vary the greens, veggies, dressing routine with a little heat for this tasty wilted salad.

Low-Glycemic Wilted Spinach Salad with Feta

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 4–5 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

One 9-ounce bag baby spinach

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

1 tablespoon plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 sweet onion, sliced

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Mix the spinach and feta cheese in a large bowl; set aside.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, and sauté it until it’s softened and starting to brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Pour the oil-onion mixture over the spinach and feta.

  3. Remove the skillet from heat, and add the vinegar and the remaining tablespoon of oil; whisk together.

  4. Pour the oil-vinegar dressing over the spinach mixture, and toss to coat everything evenly (the spinach will wilt slightly). Season the salad with salt and pepper to taste; then serve.
