Sautéed Spinach

If you're anything like me, and you live in Cincinnati, you've had enough of summer. Tomorrow the weather  is going to be 90 DEGREES!!! I'm not one to sit around and chit chat about the weather (I tend to think people should reach for something a bit more interesting and less apparent), but this is ridiculous!

Enough complaining. (Thanks for listening to my rant).

On days like today, it's difficult to pin point what I'm in the mood for. "Do I want a heavy meal that will saturate my heart with temporary bliss while leaving a residue of guilt?" I ask myself. Eh. "Do I want a fresh meal that will leave me feeling lighter than this muggy air?" Sure why not.

So here is this dish I made alongside my baked chicken. It literally took me 5 minutes to make.
Enjoy and be happy that we no longer have to wear puffy coats and Eskimos!

Ingredients 
1 bag fresh baby spinach
1/2 onion, sliced
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
salt
pepper

Steps
1. Heat oil until it shimmers then cook onions on medium heat until caramelized
2. toss in spinach and use tongs to mix in with the onions
3. Add seasoning at the very end (if added too early, the salt will release all the water from the spinach and create a wilted mess)
4. Serve warm or cold and enjoy!
