 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6      ounces        fresh spinach leaves -- washed and stemmed
    4      ounces        blue cheese, gorgonzol, or feta cheese -- crumbled
    1      pound         scallops
    2      teaspoons     olive oil
      1/2  cup           low calorie or regular Italian dressing
      1/2  cup           peanuts -- coarsely chopped
 
 Divide spinach leaves among 4 plates.  Sprinkle crumbled cheese over.  Rinse
 scallops and pat dry; cut large sea scallops in half horizontally.  Heat
 olive oil in large frying pan over high heat.  When hot, add half the
 scallops and cook, stirring often, until opaque through the center (cut to
 test), 1-2 minutes.  Lift scallops from pan and set aside.  Repeat with
 remaining scallops, adding more oil if needed.  Bring dressing to a simmer
 over medium heat.  Arrange scallops on spinach, drizzle with hot dressing and
 sprinkle with nuts.  Serves 4.
