I've always loved my grandma's recipe for spinach-mandarin salad, so when I found this recipe, I knew it was one I had to try. It's easy to make and great for special occasions. I treasure this recipe and have passed it on to many.

A touch of honey gives this simple salad a bit of sweetness while chopped apple and celery provide crunch. Best of all, it takes mere minutes to toss together for a quick lunch or side dish.—Barbara McFeters, Aurora, Oregon
This pretty and flavorful salad with a contrast of texture is refreshing and versatile…a nice accompaniment to a variety of entrees. Using this list of ingredients as a base for two, it can easily be increased to serve many more.
This recipe was voted a keeper by the whole family the first time I served it years ago. I like to put the beans and seasoning together in the morning, or even the day before, then add the blue cheese right before serving this salad.—Donna Cline, Pensacola, Florida
A light vinaigrette flavored with cilantro and grapefruit juice drapes this tangy salad from Vivian Haen of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. "You can make the vinaigrette ahead because it keeps well in the refrigerator," Vivian notes.
You don't need salt to bring out the fantastic flavor of this zesty salad from our Test Kitchen. A dash of spices and minced cilantro add to its somewhat exotic appeal.
TIP: To easily peel the oranges, cut off both ends and stand the orange upright on a cutting board. Cut downward in vertical strips following the curve of the orange to remove the peel.
