Baby spinach, mandarin oranges and avocado are teamed in this refreshing springtime salad from Margaret O'Bryon of Bel Air, Maryland. You can also substitute fresh orange slices for the mandarin oranges.
I'VE MADE this salad for my husband and me for years. I don't like cooked spinach, so I was looking for an alternative way to prepare this nutritious vegetable.
This salad is especially delicious made with fresh spinach from the garden.

Greek flavors combine in perfect harmony for a main dish you won’t be able to stop munching. Serve this with a tall glass of lemonade or iced tea and enjoy it alfresco some summer night. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen
WHEN I take a dish to a potluck gathering and everyone asks for the recipe, I know I have a winner. This refreshing salad is good with any entrée, presents itself well and is an interesting combination of flavors.
I created this recipe to make the most of the fresh spinach from our garden. I like using crushed crackers in place of croutons, but our can also top this salad with whatever fresh vegetables you have on hand.—Tina Lust, Nevada, Ohio
A sunshiny splash of citrus adds zest to this company-special spinach salad dressed up with dried cherries. To cut prep time to almost nothing (or when grapefruit is out of season), our Test Kitchen suggests using a jar of grapefruit segments found in your grocery produce section.
