Ingredients

Dressing:

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon minced shallot or red onion

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons quality walnut oil, (see Cook's Note)

Salad:

8 cups baby spinach leaves, stems trimmed, washed, and dried

1/2 cup whole or chopped toasted walnuts

1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, shallot, mustard, salt, and pepper. Gradually whisk in the oil to make a creamy dressing.
  2. Put all but a large handful of the spinach in a large bowl. Toss with most of the dressing. Add remaining spinach and continue tossing until well coated.
  3. Serve immediately topped with goat cheese and walnuts.

Cook’s Note

If your walnut oil is very strong, use half walnut oil and extra-virgin olive oil.
