  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 5 ounces baby spinach or arugula (6 cups, trimmed of woody stems and washed)

  1. Preheat oven to 425˚.
  2. Arrange the potato wedges on large rimmed, foil-lined baking sheet, toss, and coat with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
