Basil Spinach and Orange Salad

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Irmgard

My husband hates salads made with lettuce but loves spinach salad so I try different combinations using that particular green. Using prewashed spinach, this salad comes together in a very short time. If you don't have fresh basil, stir 1/2 teaspoon dried basil into the dressing.

This was a very interesting salad. Could have used a bit more salt for my palat. Also I used grapefruit instead of the orange which turned out very nice.
