|Wilted Spinach and Mango Salad served with Tuna Melts|
This was what I fixed for my dinner tonight on my third night home alone. The spinach salad was mostly my husband's recipe which he coached me through during out video chat this afternoon. The mango was my idea but he gave his exuberant blessing.
It was a success and now that I know how to do it I'm going to make it for my Mom and sister soon.
Coat skillet with olive oil and a tad bit more then add a pat of butter (optional but it enhances flavors) turn burner to medium.
Once hot add 1/3 to 1/2 cup of diced onions.
Spice to taste. I added a little sea salt, ground pepper and lots of red pepper flakes.
Once onions are transparent add garlic. Now stir constantly until onions begin to caramelize.
Then dump in 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. I used the vinegar this time.
While the spinach steamed I turned broiler on the tuna melts which I had prepped and in the oven ahead of time.
When I dished up the spinach I put in in a strainer first to drain off the excess vinegar and oil.
Once on the plate I sprinkled more red pepper flakes on and then a tablespoon or so of ground nuts. I think it is pecans in the grinder right now but am not sure. Might be walnuts or even almonds.
Then I topped it off with a quarter cup or so of mango cubes.
I can already think of half a dozen variations on this.
