The versatile Spinach!

One cup of raw spinach is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C and folate.

What to look for in a spinach?
Look for loose-leaf spinach with crisp, green leaves.

Avoid spinach with leaves that are limp, damaged , spotted, or browning. Also avoid spinach bags that are damaged or have expired use-by -dates

Peak Season
California grown varieties, available year round, may be fresher and cost less than varieties shipped from other regions.

Storing Spinach
Store washed and dried spinach loosely in an open bag in the refrigerator for up to four days.

Serving Ideas
Toss spinach with apples, dried cranberries, walnuts, and a light vinaigrette dressing for a refreshing salad.

Stir-fry spinach with brown rice, garlic, onion, and chopped red bell peppers for a colorful side dish
