I have always loved the combination of salmon and orange, but the great thing about this salad is being able to do variations. If you don't have goat cheese, try feta. —Stephanie Matthews, Tempe, Arizona

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2012

My family loved this! Gave it a $35.00 price tag if it were served in a fine dining restraurant. I substituted the goat cheese for feta and the walnuts for cashews, and then I used the "Cutie" oranges. I also tossed the spinach with everything except the oranges, green onions,feta and nuts. After assembling everything on the plate I sprinked on the nuts, crumbled feta, and onion and arranged the orange slices around the plate. This makes a wonderful plated meal.
