   Hi all,  This was in the Parade section of last
   Sunday’s paper by Rossi & Lukins. Looks great and
   healthy. Remove tough stems from spinach, Rinse well.
    Soak & clean thoroughly. Shake off water and put in a
   pot with lid. In a small bowl, combine orange juice,
   mustard & pepper. Whisk well. Slowly drizzle in xtra
   v. olive oil., whisking well. Stir in 1 T. chives;
   season with salt. Set dressing aside. Place the pure
   olive oil in a large nonstick skillet.  Over medium
   heat, add half the scallops. Cook 4 to 5 min, or until
   they are opaque and lightly golden, shaking the pan
   and turning scallops once.  Proceed with the second
   batch. Keep warm. While scallops are cooking, wilt the
   spinach over medium heat about 3 min., covered,
   stirring once. When scallops are finished, drain the
   spinach well and set in the center of a large serving
   plate. Pull spinach apart a bit with 2 forks so it
   comes close to the rim. Center scallops attractively
   atop the spinach.  Pour the orange dressing over all
   and garnish with remaining chives and the orange zest.
   Serve immediately. Per serving: 202 calories, 10g.
