Americans love their spinach. For many, adding spinach to a sandwich in addition to lettuce is a new treat.
Spinach, however, has been an adaptable and commonly used vegetable in the United States since the early 19th century.
It is enjoyed by many because of its versatility and ability to pack a lot of nutrients. Spinach can be served fresh in salads and sandwiches and used fresh, frozen or canned in soups, dips, smoothies and pasta dishes.
