Method

  1. Preheat the oven. Heat the butter in a large saucepan and gently fry the onion for 8-10 minutes, or until soft. Add the spinach and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until wilted. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, unroll the pastry and cut into 4 evenly-sized rectangles. Place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment and score a border 1cm from the edges with a sharp knife. Lightly prick the centre of each with a fork. Brush the surface of each pastry base with the beaten egg.
  3. Divide the onion and spinach mix evenly between the tart bases and top with the pine nuts and crumbled feta. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Meanwhile to make the salad dressing, mix together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar, season with salt and pepper.
  5. When the tarts are cooked, toss salad leaves with the dressing and serve.
