Spinach and Yogurt Salad

You can make a meal of this by serving it with wedges of pita bread.

2 bunches spinach, well rinsed and stemmed
    or 1 package pre-washed baby spinach
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Salt and freshly-ground pepper

Steam the spinach until it is tender and bright green ? about two minutes. Drain, cool, and squeeze it to remove excess water. Chop the spinach as finely as you can.

In a large bowl, combine it with the remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for one hour or more before serving.

Serves 4.
