Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    8 ounces mushrooms (white, cremini or mixed), cleaned and sliced
    2 cups baby spinach
    1/4 cup hazelnuts, toasted and chopped
    2 large shallots (mince one shallot finely and slice 1)
    3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    1 Tbsp. butter
    2 Tbsp. champagne or white wine vinegar
    Parmesan cheese, 4 to 6 strips shaved with a vegetable peeler
    salt and pepper

Directions

Make vinaigrette:

Finely chop 1 shallot (you'll need 1 Tbsp.). In a small bowl, add shallot and 2 Tbsp. champagne or white wine vinegar. Let sit 15 minutes to soften shallot before whisking in 2 Tbsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

In a skillet over medium heat, add 1 Tbsp. olive oil and 1 Tbsp. butter; heat until butter begins to foam. Add sliced mushrooms and sliced shallot. Sauté until softened and slightly browned. Add 1/2 of the vinaigrette and cook for 1 minute.

Place spinach in a serving bowl. Add warm mushroom/shallot mixture and any pan juices. Toss gently. Add hazelnuts and any additional vinaigrette to taste. Add salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. Serve topped with shaved Parmesan.

    Good recipe. I tried this but cut all the oils in half. Too many calories for me in a side dish! - 12/13/12

    This was amazing! I made it last night and we loved it! I used my own vinagrette though which cut the 1/1 oil vinegar ratio. In my vinagrette there is lemon juice, paprika, dried mustard and a garlic clove. Probably great as is though with a little extra spice. This was just so delicious! - 12/25/12

    it sounds nice... I love the bacon style spinach salad but this would be a nice change. And if people read the "tips" with the email they would see that Chef Meg suggested adding cherry or grape tomatoes to round out the salad, which is what is pictured. - 12/24/12

    This sounds very good. I am sure the picture does not do it justice. I am going to make it but for a side the calories are too high. Too much fat for a side but nuts can be left out for later.I will scatter 1 tablespoon of grape-nuts to give it a crunch. Pat in Maine. - 12/25/12

  • Was great for a lunch instead of a side it was filling and my hubby even enjoyed.I will use this recipe again. Thank you - 1/8/14

  • I made this with one whole bunch of kale (using 1Tbs butter, 1Tbs olive oil and 3Tbs white wine vinegar). I added the kale when the mushrooms were about half done, then covered the pan to steam the greens for ~4 minutes. I omitted the nuts and did not need the extra dressing. Delicious! Thanks. - 1/7/14

    Prior suggestions sounds great and I have an abundance of fresh spinach . . . I will be making my variation. I will omit or reduce the oils and nuts, and add a boiled egg, tomato, bacon bits (instead of nuts) before serving. I would call it a meal in one. - 5/25/13
