Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons Spanish extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 golden delicious apple peeled, cored, and cut into ¼-inch cubes
  • 4 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1 clove Garlic minced (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons seedless dark raisins
  • 10 ounces baby spinach washed and whole
  • Salt to taste

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over a high flame. When the oil is very hot, add the apple cubes and sauté until slightly browned, about a minute. Add the pine nuts to the skillet and cook another 20 seconds until slightly browned. Keep the pan moving so the ingredients don’t burn.
  • Add the raisins and garlic and sauté another 20 seconds. Add the spinach and sauté briefly until the spinach starts to wilt. Remove from the heat; the spinach will continue to wilt off the flame. Add salt to taste and serve immediately.
