Dear SOS: The Eclectic Cafe in North Hollywood makes a warm spinach-basil salad that is to die for! Could you possibly persuade them to share the recipe?

Dear Lisa: This easy recipe with its sprightly combination of basil and spinach is a welcome departure from a standard green salad. Proportions here are for a single serving; double or triple as needed.

1

Wash and stem the spinach and basil. Pat dry. Toss together in a bowl.

2

In a small saute pan, heat the extra virgin olive oil. Add the prosciutto and pine nuts and cook for 30 seconds. Drizzle over the salad.

3

Broil or torch the goat cheese until the cheese softens and begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Slide it on top of the salad.
