Serves 4

2 tablespoons The Olive Oil Source mild extra virgin olive oil
1 Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup seedless dark raisins
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
10 ounces baby spinach, washed

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 raisins and the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and stir together. Add spinach, mix, and saute very fast until it starts to wilt. Then remove pot from heat; the spinach will continue to wilt off the heat. Add salt to taste, and serve immediately.
