Wild mushrooms give this spinach salad Andorran appeal. The crunch of slivered almonds and the sweet of the golden raisins add another dimension.

2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 Tbsp olive oil, plus 1 Tbsp for the last step

1/4 cup raisins
1/2 lb baby spinach

  2. This looks delicious Sasha. Since I don’t like cooked raisins and mushrooms… I would probably put in small pieces of a crispy sweet apple or a crispy sour apple or maybe even some of both.
