- 1/3 cup red wine vinegar or rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon frozen orange juice concentrate
- 1/6 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries
- 1/2 cup light olive oil (or canola oil)
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- Lawry’s Season Salt and Pepper to taste
If you are not into making your own dressing, which is VERY economical, I do love the Lighthouse dressings or many of the Kraft vinaigrette dressings are good, especially House Italian (hard to find sometimes) and Catalina. But making your own just simply tastes better. Especially making your own buttermilk ranch.
|Spinach Salad with Candied Pecans Recipe
1 package of baby spinach, add mixed greens if desired
- 1 10.5-ounce can mandarin orange drained OR
- 1/2 cup fresh raspberries or fresh sliced strawberries (choose your fruit)
- 1/3 cup sliced almonds or pecans, lightly toasted with regular sugar
- 1/4 cup fresh diced avocado
- thin slices of red onion if desired (I don’t love onions but my family does)
- sometimes I toss in some dried cherries or cranberries too. I just got some real nice fat dried cherries from the farmers market so I would add those.
- occasionally if I have fresh mushrooms I will add 4 thinly sliced and halved.
|Spinach Salad.and Candied Pecans..sometimes I add mushrooms, sometimes I add dried cranberries or cherries…
But I really prefer fresh strawberries in season….and a little bit of sliced avacado….and of course the purple onion….
A good dressing if you are in a time crunch is Kraft light raspberry vinaigrette. It is sweet and yummy and only 50 calories a serving. Spinach salad is always a light and healthy summer salad that everybody loves eating.
