"Spinach is susceptible of receiving all imprints: It is the virgin wax of the kitchen."
-Grimod de la Reyniere, 19th century gourmand

The refrigerator light goes on...

I first had this recipe in Spain and again here in the United States at a Spanish restaurant. It is a simple and quick dish that balances the bitterness of the spinach with sweet raisins and apples. The touch of salt and nuttiness round out the flavors for a well-balanced dish.
