We've been craving fresh greens so much lately that I've been buying fresh organic spinach at our local co-op. They've also had wonderful navel oranges that we've been enjoying for a month or so.
Many of you may already make this salad but I think my dressing that goes with it is especially good so I thought I'd share it.
There's no need for a recipe for the salad. It's just spinach on a plate with alternating sections of red onion and peeled and sliced oranges.
DRESSING FOR SPINACH/ORANGE/RED ONION SALAD
In a jar with a tight fitting lid combine:
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper (I use a bit more 'cause I like pepper)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Put all ingredients in the jar and shake (the jar) until well combined. Drizzle over spinach salad on plate. Store any remaining dressing in refrigerator.
An easy-peasy salad that tastes pretty darn good this time of year!
