Orange Vinaigrette Spinach Salad Recipe

Orange Vinaigrette Spinach Salad Recipe

This special salad is lightly coated in a refreshing citrus dressing. I sometimes serve it with a side of cottage cheese…the taste of orange and all the cheeses will have your friends and family begging for more. —Jamie Pearson, Woodbury, Minnesota
