Spinach Salad Deluxe
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This recipe features olive oil which has been heated so that it is a version of a "wilted" spinach salad.
4 - 6 slices French bread or Franchese baguette
Cut the bread into evenly shaped cubes. In heavy bottomed saute pan, heat the oil and toss in the bread. Cook and stir for several minutes or until bread cubes are turning light brown. Remove from heat and set aside in the pan to cool and to dry. In large beautiful bowl, combine the spinach leaves which have been washed and spun dry, and torn into pieces, with the onions, olives, garlic, and mint leaves. Toss in the cheese crumbles and add the vinegar. Heat the remaining olive oil in a glass measuring cup on high for 45 seconds to warm it. Quickly pour over the salad and toss. Taste for seasonings, adding more vinegar, salt, and pepper, as needed. Garnish with orange slices. Serve immediately.
