Spinach-Orange Salad


Remember that old saying about a man and his stomach?  Well, I think this is the recipe it was referring to.  This salad is a man-catcher!  Every time I make this salad, the guys gobble it up and ask for seconds (and the recipe).  The girls like it, too, but I’m just sayin’, it’s a man-catcher.  I change it up based on what fruit is fresh at the time.  This go-round I chose to use the fabulously cute and easy-to-peel satsumas.  But, it also works really well with navel oranges, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and on and on.  Bottom-line:  your guy will LOVE it! so make enough for him to have seconds.

    Recently served this salad and got so many great compliments. It’s a wonderful salad to serve during the winter months when satsumas and mandarines are so good and plentiful.
