Ingredients

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the mushrooms; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
Drain mushrooms and discard marinade. Transfer mushrooms to a grill wok or basket. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 8-12 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Cool slightly.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the spinach, oranges, onion, almonds and grilled mushrooms. Drizzle with reserved marinade; toss to coat. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: If you do not have a grill wok or basket, use a disposable foil pan. Poke holes in the bottom of the pan with a meat fork to allow liquid to drain.

"I loved this recipe. I made a couple of small changes including changing the onions from red to sweet and frying them until transluscent. I also toasted the almonds. Delicious!"
