Fresh Spinach with Lemon Sauce

Prepare Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon grated lemon zest

In a small bowl, stir together the sauce ingredients.

Prepare spinach:

  • 12 ounces fresh washed spinach
  • 1/3 cup water

In a Dutch oven, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the spinach. Cook for 1 minute, or until just limp, stirring constantly. (Using two utensils makes handling easier.) Using a slotted spoon, transfer the spinach to a shallow serving dish.


Top with the sauce, spreading with the back of a spoon. Let the butter melt before serving the spinach.
