A classic comfort food dish, brightened up with the addition of Vanns Celery Salt and pickled jalapeño.
Creamed spinach is about as classic as you can go on a side dish, but this version, adapted from beloved food writer Laurie Colwin, spices things up a bit to cut through the creaminess of the dish with some pickled jalapeños and Vanns Celery Salt. It may seem like an unexpected combination, but the Celery Salt is perfectly subtle, just adding a bit of green brightness to the otherwise heavy dish. Monterey Jack cheese and buttered breadcrumbs round out the dish, which is equally at home as part of a fancy dinner or as a vegetarian main dish to be served with a simple salad on the side.
Serves 6-8. Adapted from Laurie Colwin.
