Fresh spinach is in season! That means that right now you can get the freshest, most delicious spinach of the year. Choose locally-grown, fresh-picked spinach. Rinse it carefully and use it as soon as possible. Try fresh, tender spinach instead of lettuce in salads and sandwiches – it’s more nutritious! And when you do cook it, steam it just until it wilts, or sauté it quickly with a little oil and garlic. Spinach tastes great plain, with a little vinegar, or you can add it to omelets, pastas, soups, or casseroles. Enjoy fresh spinach!
