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.

    I love this salad and always get asked for the recipe when I serve it to others. Note that once you add the dressing the salad must be eaten shortly thereafter. Else, the lettuce/ spinach get soggy. I suggest you serve the dressing on the side for pouring on individual servings if you've made a larger than needed salad that you'd like to save. Trust me, it is so worth saving.
