Published courtesy of JulieCat in the Kitchen’s blog:

I love cooking dishes that incorporate “special” ingredients, and most of all, I love recipes that are quick and easy (who doesn’t?).   This salad was so good, and it was ready in just a matter of minutes!  You have to try this one.scallop2

Scallop & Spinach Salad


– 1 lb Fresh Scallops

– Spinach

– Green Onions: sliced

– Cilantro: chopped

1.  Rinse scallops and pat dry.  Toss with olive oil and season with ground pepper.

2.  Make your dressing by combining a couple tablespoons of olive oil, one tablespoon of ACV, one tablespoon of lemon juice and fresh ground pepper.  Toss the spinach in the dressing until evenly coated.  Set aside.

3.  To a pan, add a tablespoon of olive oil, fresh garlic, and green onions.  Turn on the heat to medium and cook for a couple minutes.
