Spinach and Orange Salad
2 to 3 cups fresh spinach
Half of an orange
1 tablespoon vinegar, lemon juice, or orange juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or olive oil Salt and pepper
If spinach is not pre-washed, rinse spinach well. We recommend soaking in a bowl of cool water for 2 to 3 minutes to remove any dirt. Lift from water and dry well. Next, remove and discard any woody stems.
Chop or tear spinach into bite-size pieces. Peel the orange and pull the wedges apart. Chop orange wedges into small pieces. Mix spinach and orange together in a bowl.
To make the dressing, mix the vinegar and oil together in a cup or bowl, and add in the salt and pepper. Stir well, and pour over the spinach and orange.
Spinach salad is a tasty way to eat your greens, and it is easy to experiment with different ingredients. Some ideas include adding nuts, dried cranberries, or other vegetables. Try adding sliced red onion, bell pepper, cucumber, or anything else that sounds good to you.
