This robustly flavored spinach salad from My Great Recipes is low in calories though you’d never guess it. The dressing contains no oil, simply a combination of soy sauce and vinegar.
Be certain to wash the spinach well as there is often sand in the fold of the leaves. For easier drying, try a “salad spinner.” To keep mushrooms crisp, do not wash in water, rather wipe clean with cloth or soft brush.
Good served with any roasted or broiled meats or poultry. Also makes an excellent accompaniment to a single Oriental-style dish, such as sweet-sour pork or shrimp.
