Recipe for Spinach with Olives, Raisins, and Pine Nuts. Marvelous. Serve this either as a warmed salad or at room temperature.


  • 20 ounces ready-to-use fresh spinach leaves or 4 large bunches, rinsed and trimmed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/3 cup pitted, brine-cured olives
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic or red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped garlic, olives, and raisins, and sauté until the garlic begins to color, about 3 minutes. Add the spinach and the toasted pine nuts and toss until heated through. Add vinegar and toss again. Season generously with salt and pepper and serve.
