Raw baby spinach with candied orange peel, blanched almonds, and fruit compote tossed in a light vinaigrette.

This is one of the best takes on a spinach salad I have ever had. The addition of the fruit compote is such a lovely touch, melding the raw spinach and candied orange together with the light crunch of the slivered almonds. It may look like a spinach salad, but it eats more like a layered and decadent dessert.


Terre dAcqua is located off a small plaza in the Travestere neighborhood of Rome.

    • Hi Liz! Yes, just got back from a week in Rome. I wrote a little something about it in Saturday’s post–it was really one of the best culinary trips I have had, currently flooding my blog with posts about the food there!
