Warm Spinach Salad with Apple and Robusto Cheese

Warm Spinach Salad with Apple and Robusto Cheese

Serves 4

The aged Dutch cheese known as Robusto is an excellent partner to earthy spinach and sweet-tart apple, but any firm, nutty cheese such as Gruyère or gouda would work beautifully as well.

  • 1 Gala or Honeycrisp apple, diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced
  • 5 ounces baby spinach leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2/3 cup finely diced Robusto or other firm, nutty cheese

In a large skillet, combine apple, onion and 1/4 cup water over medium-high heat and cover. Simmer until onion and apple are just tender, about 5 minutes. Uncover and stir in spinach and salt, stirring just until spinach wilts. Transfer to a serving bowl and toss with Robusto.
