Serves: 4
 
Ingredients:
  • 6 cups spinach or your choice of salad greens
  • 1 cup orange sections
  • 6 strawberries, sliced
  • ½ cup toasted almonds
Optional Additions:
  • shredded cheese
  • cooked chicken
  • bacon
Salad Dressing:
Instructions:
  1. Wash and dry spinach. Top with orange sections, sliced strawberries, and toasted almonds. Drizzle with Orange Vinaigrette or the salad dressing of your choice.
Notes:
We recommend using organic ingredients whenever possible.

I prefer using mandarin or tangerine oranges since they peel and separate into sections so easily, but any kind of orange will work!

Toasting almonds <g class="gr_ gr_81 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_run_anim gr_inline_cards Grammar multiReplace" id="81" data-gr-id="81">is</g> super easy and quick ... just make sure you watch them like a hawk since they can turn from golden to burnt quickly! Preheat your oven (I use my toaster oven) to 350 degrees F. Place sliced almonds on a baking sheet and cook for 3-4 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven immediately and cool.

Serves 4 as a side salad or 2 as an entree.
