1. Wash and shred the spinach. Place in a large salad bowl. Fry the bread cubes in the butter, or butter and oil mixture, until golden. Remove, drain on absorbent kitchen paper, then sprinkle the cubes over the spinach.

Cook's Tip
Prepare flavoured vinegars for use in salads. Put herb sprigs- tarragon, thyme, basil, rosemary- into bottles of white wine vinegar and leave for 1 month before use.
