Citrus Spinach Salad


Hello! I'm excited to be sharing this juicy, bright & delicious salad with you today!

This salad screams summer time! So many tasty fruits & a simple, tangy & creamy dressing pairs perfectly with the crisp spinach. Pair this baby with grilled chicken & some tasty mashed potatoes for a hearty & fresh BBQ dinner!

Citrus Spinach Salad

Ingredients

For the salad:

- 8 cups fresh spinach

- 1/2 of a red onion, sliced thin

- 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

- 1 lb strawberries, trimmed and sliced

- 1-10 fl. oz can mandarin oranges, drained

For the dressing:

- Juice from 1/2 a navel orange (about 1/4 cup)

- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt

- 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

- 1 tsp white sugar

- 1 tsp Dijon mustard

- Black pepper, to taste

Directions

1. Wash and dry spinach. Place in large serving bowl.

2. Add in onions, strawberries and oranges. Toss to mix ingredients together.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together ingredients for the dressing until fully mixed together. Drizzle dressing over spinach salad and toss to coat with dressing.

4. Top with toasted almonds* and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes:

* How to toast almonds: Place 1/2 cup of sliced almonds in shallow baking dish. At 350, bake almonds for 3-4 minutes, until they smell nutty & begin to turn golden brown. Keep a VERY close eye on these babies...they can go from being done to burnt in a span of 30 seconds! You're looking for a golden brown colour on your almonds. This enhanced their flavour SO MUCH so don't skip this step!
