Andorra: Spinach salad with raisins and pine nuts

This salad is a simple dish consisting of spinach, topped with pine nuts and raisins.

Start by chopping and blanching your spinach leaves. We used a 5 oz. bag of fresh spinach. Set this aside and keep it warm.

Next, heat some oil in a small frying pan. Add one clove of finely chopped garlic. After one or two minutes, add the pine nuts and raisins. We used 1/4 cup of each, but if I make it again I will use less (or use more spinach). The ratio didn’t seem quite right. Sautée these ingredients until the raisins get plump and the pine nuts start to turn golden-brown.
