Warm Greens With Emeril's Herb Vinaigrette

Warm Greens With Emeril's Herb Vinaigrette

These quick and easy greens will pair with just about anything.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 8 - 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 salad servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 cups assorted greens (combine baby kale, spinach, arugula, or other greens)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup Emeril's Herb Vinaigrette


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the greens, salt, and pepper and heat, stirring gently, just until the greens wilt, for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  • If you're preparing the Herbed Pan Roast of Salmon, finish according to that recipeís directions. If youíre serving this as a side salad for another dish, toss the greens with some of the vinaigrette just before serving.

  • Note: To remove dirt from greens, place them in a colander or large strainer and rinse them with cool water, preferably with your sinkís spray attachments, if you have one. Spread the greens on a dish towel or several paper towels and gently pay them dry. Or use a salad spinner, if you have one.
