Hy’s one of the most famous old-school steakhouses in Canada to have on the menu a beautiful feature that does not have meat as its centrepiece!

The dish that gets me every time I dine is their the Spinach Salad  – prepared right before your eyes. If you like warm salad like I do you can’t miss to try this dish.

I replicated it at home and got very close to the taste profile – so I would like to share it with you.
