Easy and tasty. Perfect for a rainy day. I usually canNOT stop eating this. The dressing is what brings this salad together, and I think it can also be used with chicken or fish. Other good add-ins include bacon, corn, or avocado. Or just all of them.
Warm spinach salad

Budget for ingredients: ¥400
1 bunch of spinach
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 c ponzu sauce*

*Note: Ponzu sauce is a combo of basically soysauce plus a citrus fruit. The ponzu sauce I used is called YUZU <ゆずポン酢>, which is the citrus fruit used in my particular bottle.
**Note: Ginger ”paste”, aka grated ginger in a bottle, can be found easily in Japanese supermarkets in squeeze bottles. They are yellow and are marked <生姜 しょうが>, aka SHOUGA.

2. Sauté onion with a bit of oil until translucent. Usually takes 5 minutes.
3. Add in ponzu sauce, ginger, and honey. Stir together until honey dissolves.
