OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING: MAIN COURSE SALAD | Blog Post |

March 27, 2012

Spring has sprung! Which, for me, means: as much outdoor partying as possible.

Glo.com's cover story today featured me and a group of gals having a terriifc al fresco lunch, the main course of which was a delicious Indian Spinach Salad recipe that my friend Nancy Baker Cahill gave me in a crumpled up Xerox copy a million years ago. When you're having friends for lunch, I think serving one salad - with enough filling ingredients to satisfy - is the easiest and most VGL way to go. 

Here's the recipe!

INDIAN SPINACH SALAD

½ cup white wine vinegar

3 T. chopped chutney

1 tsp. dry mustard

2 tsp. curry powder

¼ tsp. hot pepper sauce

2/3 cup oil

½ tsp. salt

3 bunches spinach, washed and trimmed

2 large Delicious apples, sliced thinly

2/3 cup dry roasted peanuts

½ cup golden raisins

½ cup finely sliced green onions

3 T. sesame seeds

[Optional: Roast Chicken slices]

Combine wine vinegar, chutney, mustard, curry powder, hot pepper sauce, oil, and salt. Mix well and chill until ready to serve.

In a salad bowl, combine spinach, apples, peanuts, raisins, green onions, and sesame seeds. Serve and toss with prepared dressing. (Place slices of roasted chicken on top, if using.) Makes 4-6 servings as a side dish and 2-3 servings as a main dish.

Sounds so good! Thank you for sharing. How do you feel about dropping the peanuts? Could you substitute almonds?////OF COURSE! OR EVEN PINE NUTS WOULD BE A GOOD ADDITION. I WOULD TOAST WHICHEVER NUT YOU CHOOSE, AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE JUST THE SLIGHTEST BIT SALTED...- Sally
