Maria’s Sunny Salad

December 16, 2009

I can’t take credit for the idea behind this bright, fun salad.  I was visiting a friend in Philly, who makes this for parties.  It’s easy and a real crowd pleaser!  Plus the mandarin oranges look really nice against the dark green of the spinach.  How can  you go wrong?

You will need:

  • Fresh baby spinach
  • 1 small can of mandarin orange segments, drained
  • ~1/2 small pkg of crumbled feta (or more to taste!)
  • Poppyseed dressing
  • Generous handful of sliced almonds
  • 1 T butter

Then you:

  1. Combine the spinach, orange slices and feta in a big serving bowl.
  2. Toss with dressing to taste.
  3. In a non-stick small skillet, melt the butter.  Add the almonds and toast until golden, stirring frequently.  Allow to cool on a paper towel for a few minutes, before adding to the top of the salad!  Yumm!
