Prep Information

Prep Time

5 minutes

Cook Time

3-5 minutes


4 people


  • 10 ounces baby spinach, washed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup seedless dark raisins
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 Tablespoons any Marisolio mild Extra Virgin Olive Oil such as Arbequina, Picual or Hojiblanca


  • Remove pot from heat; the spinach will continue to wilt off the heat.
  • Add raisins and the 1/2 teaspoon salt and stir together. Add spinach. Mix and sauté very fast until it starts to wilt.
  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over a high flame. When oil is very hot, add apple cubes and cook until they are a little browned, less than 1 minute.
  • Add pine nuts and cook until they are brown, about 20 seconds. Keep the pot moving so nuts don't burn.
  • Add salt to taste and serve immediately.
