Wilted Spinach Salad with Warm Citrus Vinaigrette


Spinach I count that ways I love thee....I think I put it in almost everything. I especially sneak it in food when ever my son wont notice. My bunny rabbit of a daughter will eat it in every way shape and form. She will eat anything. I honestly don't know where it goes. Maybe a bottomless pit. Anyways this is a great year round salad. It will surely warm you and fill you right up! It is a great main dish or even a side dish.

½ pounds Fresh Baby Spinach
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
½ cups Oil-cured Black Olives, Pitted And Halved
1 whole Medium Red Onion Halved And Cut Into 1/4-inch-thick Wedges
Fresh Cilantro, To Sprinkle On Top
Sea Salt And Pepper

⅓ cups Orange Juice
⅓ cups Apple Cider Vinegar
⅓ cups Olive Oil
¼ cups Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
