About the music: This spinach salad recipe goes back six millennia. Legend has it just before Adam used a spinach leaf to cover Eve’s fuzzy peach, they both snacked on a delicious spinach leaf salad. This all happened during those few exotic hours post apple ingestion. Apparently, whilst Adam and Eve were taking a rest from rolling in lust, they got quite hungry and with divine inspiration chefed up the very Songbird’s Spinach Salad we are posting today! At Sfunk headquarters we mused over this delightful tale and came up with eight songs, that will make any kitchen an Eden. Since Eve is blamed as the main conspirator of man’s fall, we thought this mix should be supported by only lady vocals. The opening jam is fittingly titled, ‘The Fall’ by Rhye so prepare yourself for song seduction. Then we’ve got the cheeky New Zealander – Kimbra and her track ‘Settle Down’. Topped off with Brooklyn’s finest duo Sleigh Bells, Joan as Policewoman and other babeses. So please indulge, listen and don’t be afraid to party naked.
Prep time: 30 minutes
As much spinach as you see fit
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
4 hard boiled eggs
4-6 strips dank bacon
Any nut of your choosing (pine, walnut, cashew)
fruity vinaigrette like raspberry or strawberry
First hard boil your eggs. You may think you know how to do this but you don’t. Put your eggs in a saucepan and fill until covering eggs by about an inch. Bring the pot to a boil, let cook for about 30 seconds take off heat and cover for 10 minutes. That’s how a true G hard boils an egg.
Put your dressing in a saucepan with about 1/3 of your mushrooms and 1/4 of your onion. Heat that bad boy up until those things inside it are cooked and infused with vinegary goodness. Heating it also gets rid of some of the alcohol in the dressing and makes it sweeter. Once done put in freezer to cool down until you serve it. As you do this, take a second and think to yourself how cool all this hot new music is making you seem in front of your friends.
Put everything else in a bowl with the spinach, including the now sliced egg. Dress the salad like you would yourself on a perfect 66 degree day. You could be totally cool in a t-shirt but you’re going to rock the hoody just in case you get cold. Translate that metaphor into salad and consume.
