This pretty salad can be put together in less than 20 minutes. It adds lots of color to the table, and the sweet-tart dressing is a wonderful complement to the spinach and fruit.


  • 1/4 cup red currant jelly
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 8 cups torn fresh spinach
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


  1. For dressing, in a small saucepan, cook and stir the jelly and vinegar over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until melted and smooth. Cool completely.
  2. Just before serving, in a large salad bowl, combine the spinach, oranges, strawberries and onions. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat.
