Recipe Ingredient Details:
6 cups fresh spinach leaves (a small bunch)
1 cup fresh chopped basil
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup pine nuts
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
salt and a generous grinding of fresh black pepper to taste
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Wash and dry the spinach thoroughly. Tear apart the spinach leaves and toss together in a large salad bowl with the chopped basil.
Over medium heat, warm the oil in a small skillet. Add the pine nuts and sauté 3-4 minutes until the nuts begin to brown slightly. Add the garlic when nuts are almost finished. Add vinegar and lemon juice just to warm through. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
Toss the spinach and basil with desired amount of the warm dressing. Sprinkle with freshly-grated Parmesan and serve immediately.
