Spinach Salad with Honey Dressing
This recipe is one of my favorite ways to use oranges - they pair nicely with the spinach and other vegetables. It's very easy to make and quite refreshing on a hot summer day. I've taken it many times to salad suppers at church, and each time I receive many compliments.
