Spinach Salad and Ribs – A Meal Through Photos

When making dinner the other night I found myself taking a ton of pictures.  This is a nice meal that’s great for company because the ribs braise in the oven for a few hours.  I call them Super Easy Ribs and my own recipe for Spinach Salad (salad recipe is at the end of the post).  I could eat this salad at least once a week… easy, healthy and yummy!

Oven roasted ribs, spinach salad and the appropriate beverage

Making the ribs…

After braising in tin foil for 2 1/2 hours they go on the cookie sheet.

Braising liquid gets dumped into a saucepan and gets reduced to make a glaze.

And after a hot date with the broiler...they are done!

Spinach Salad Recipe
Serves 6

Roughly 3/4 lb baby spinach (or about 2/3 of one of those big tubs)
6 strawberries, thinly sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
4 Tbs red wine vinegar
A little less than 1/2 cup canola oil
Several dashes of tabasco
Several dashes of black pepper
4 Tbs sugar
1 tsp salt

**For extra something, you can add crumbled bacon, although I don’t think it needs it.

Mix all ingredients (except strawberries and onion) very well and pour over spinach and toss well.  Add berries and onion and toss well again.  Let sit for around 10 minutes or so for the spinach to wilt.
