Mix ingredients together in a large salad bowl. Pre heat a non stick sauté pan on medium high heat. Sauté the spinach salad for about 1-2 minutes. Avoid over cooking to prevent your spinach from turning brown.
Chef Michael’s notes:
First prepare the Prime Rib for the oven. To help with time, then work on the Quinoa Recipe while the meat is roasting. This recipe can quickly be heated in a sauté pan. The Lemon Chardonnay Spinach recipe is also quick prep item. I recommend preparing the ingredients, then sautéing when the Prime Rib is ready to be served.
For the Garnish:
Fresh Rosemary and sliced cherry tomatoes
