Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Mandarin Oranges


This is a great summer salad my Step Mom used to make, it is quick, easy and very tasty!

You will need

Spinach (I use bagged, organic)
Small can of Mandarin Oranges, drained
Fresh strawberries sliced
Chopped almonds, or whatever kind of nut you like
Poppy seeds (optional)
Arrange your spinach in a bowl and add the oranges, sliced strawberries, and almonds.
For the dressing

1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup olive oil or whatever your favorite oil is
2 tsp champagne vinegar (you could use rice wine)
2 tsp vanilla yogurt (this gives the dressing body)
2 tsp honey
Fat teaspoon of Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp poppy seeds (optional)
*Whisk the dressing until well incorporated and dress your salad
