I happen to be one of those weird people that only eat fresh spinach and only if it is used for salad. I recently picked up one of the Perfect Pears Balsamic Vinegar. I always like the Perfect Pear recipes so, I decided to give their spinach salad recipe a whirl. This recipe was just like all of the other Perfect Pear recipes that I have tried. They are always delicious! You start with heating six slices of pancetta that you have chopped over medium high heat for about two to three minutes. Once he pancetta has cooked to your liking, then you will transfer them to a paper towel to drain off the excess grease. You will then add two tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil to the pan along with a small shallot that you finely chopped. You will sauté those together for two minutes. After your two minutes is up, you will add in two teaspoons of sugar. You will sauté that mixture together for one minute. You are probably wondering when do you add the balsamic vinegar, you are finally going to add two tablespoons of it in now making sure that you scrape up the pan drippings. Now add one bunch of flat-leaf spinach to the dressing and let it wilt and coat it evenly in the vinaigrette you just created. You will finally take the salad off of the heat and put it into a serving bowl and top it off with the pancetta. I paired my salad with a steak dinner and a baked potato. It was the perfect dinner.
