Tender beets tossed in a vinaigrette top this spinach salad along with mushrooms and homemade croutons.
1 red onion, thinly sliced
2 slices whole wheat bread, cut into cubes
8 oz (or 2 small) fresh beets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small shallot, minced
1 tablespoon honey mustard
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
12 oz spinach, thoroughly washed, stems removed
4 oz button mushrooms, wiped clean, stems trimmed and sliced
1 Preheat oven to 350°.
2 Fill a medium sized bowl with water and ice then add onions. Let stand for 30 minutes, drain and set aside.
3 Place bread cubes on a baking sheet and toast in oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden, tossing occassionally then set the croutons aside.
