Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of fresh orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallots

  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dried currants
  • 2 tablespoons dried cherries, halved
  • 6-7 cups fresh spinach, stemmed and washed
  • Simmer the orange juice, uncovered in a small saucepan over medium heat until it is reduced to 1/4 cup, about 10 minutes.

Combine the reduced orange juice, garlic, curry powder, shallots, salt and olive oil in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

Bring several cups of water to a simmer in a wide pot.

Mix the dried fruit and spinach in a large heatproof metal bowl, and toss with 3 tablespoons of dressing. Set the bowl over the simmering water. Holding the edge of the bowl with a pot holder, use tongs to toss the greens until they are just wilted, about 1 minute.

Divide the salad among four plates. Drizzle the remaining dressing around the plates and over greens. Serve immediately.

Yum yum!!
