You will need

Chopped almonds, or whatever kind of nut you likePoppy 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)
