Wilted spinach can take on so many different flavor profiles. In this recipe, the spinach is given a kick of heat from the addition of a hot red chili pepper and fruity sweetness with sun-dried tomatoes, as well as bright notes from grated lime zest and fresh lime juice. What really makes this salad a standout, however, is the feta cheese that's sprinkled on top before serving, and which melts slightly from the heat of the spinach, and also the crunchy toasted sliced almonds.


  • 1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
  • 300 grams spinach leaves
  • 1 red chili
  • 6 sun dried tomatoes
  • salt (to taste)
  • 1/2 lime (juice and zest)
  • 20 grams feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons flaked almonds


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.
  2. Add the spinach and saute until it reduces in volume.
  3. Add the chili (if you prefer less spicy remove the seeds) cut into thin slices and the whole dried tomatoes.
  4. Mix and season with salt, lime zest, and lime juice.
  5. Serve hot with diced feta cheese and flaked almonds that were previously toasted.
