The other night when I wanted a little snack, I was trying to decide between some of this salad and M&M cookies. Sound like a no-brainer? I chose the salad, believe it or not. But then of course, like any chocolate lover, I had the cookies after I finished my greens. =)
Here's the way I make it--thanks to my friend Amanda for getting me hooked!
1 bag baby spinach
1 small can of mandarin oranges, drained
1 diced pear
1/2 c. slivered almonds
1/2 c. red onion
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1/2 c. oil
Mix dressing well and toss with spinach and other ingredients. It's best fresh, as the spinach wilts under the power of the deliciously tangy dressing. Enjoy!
