Bernstein Lite Italian Dressing

Directions:
Directions:
This salad is made one serving at a time.
Put a serving of spinach in a microwavable bowl.
Pour on a generous amount of the lite dressing.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap.

Place in microwave and set for about 30 seconds.
Start heating and watch carefully through the window. As soon as the spinach starts to wilt or shrink, STOP!

This will probably take only about ten seconds. Uncover and serve immediately while hot. If you leave it too long it will just be cooked spinach.

Personal Notes:
The salad section of a recipe book is hardly the place where one might look for Christmas traditions but I am reminded of many Christmas meals with the Brues in Fiscus and later at the farm in Audubon. My mom's (Betty Off) plastic tree became a fixture on the appetizer table. It was decorated with loads of olives-ripe and green. It was not unusual to find at least one kid and often an adult or two, with an olive on every finger! It never seemed to curb anyone's appetite.

Salads were a part of most every meal when I was young and I still enjoy most salads. This is the only recipe that I actually invented all by myself, about 20 years ago. There is a spinach salad that I always enjoyed made with spinach and hot bacon grease where you put crumbled bacon on the spinach then pour the hot grease on the salad causing the spinach to wilt. This was tasty, but not very healthful.
