I hope I am not boring you with spinach but it is a vegetable that can be used in almost anything. It is good with meat, fish and poultry. Add it to a pasta dish.
Take some fresh spinach, add a dressing and some other vegetables and what a salad you get. For a side dish, I can't imagine what you can't mix with spinach.
I added the bok choy stalks, shallots and tomatoes with a little bit of dressing and served it hot. Yummy.
Thanks to Popeye.

Add spinach to mix in skillet. Add the tomatoes and gently mix together. Heat for 2 minutes or until hot. It can be eaten warm or cold, as well.
I bet you want one of these Chocolate Peppermint Brownies from the Pink Recipe Box
or Creme Brulee French Toast from My Turn.
