Greek Potato Spinach Salad

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 stick butter (8 tablespoons, 4 ounces or 1/2 cup)
  • 6 Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 12 pieces each
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled into cloves
  • 2 lemons, juiced and zested
  • 1/2 cup more of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 10 oz baby spinach
  • Sprinkled sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Directions:

Greek Potato and Spinach Salad

  1. Place a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add the first olive oil and butter. When the butter has melted and begins to sizzle, add the potatoes and brown slowly and patiently for 15-20 minutes, turning them as necessary until they have evenly browned on all sides.
  2. Meanwhile finely chop or puree the garlic. Whisk the lemon, second olive oil, garlic and oregano into a small bowl and whisk until emulsified. Put browned potatoes into a salad bowl and toss with garlic dressing, salt and pepper and spinach.
