    ladypit's Note:

    I bought a huge bag of baby Spinach at the store and have been looking for ways to use it up. Found something similar to this in my "Weight Watchers Miracle Foods: More Fruits, More Veggies" cookbook. This has been tweaked to my own tastes. The original calls for more beets and less orange. As the original was written it would be 1 point for 1 cup. This might be just a tad more and would be a CORE recipe for WW. Even if you're not on WW though, it is a healthy tasty recipe!

    1. 1
      Chop the spinach coarsely and put it in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Peel the orange and separate into sections.
    3. 3
      Cut each section in half and add it to the spinach.
    4. 4
      Peel and dice the beet and add it to the spinach.
    5. 5
      (This will dye your hands red. You can do it with gloves or attempt to do it under water, but I have never had much success. I just don't care about red hands I guess!).
    6. 6
      Mix the lime juice, the splenda or sugar, the ginger, the red pepper flakes, and the salt.
    7. 7
      Stir it together well.
    8. 8
      Pour over the salad and let it sit for a few minutes so the flavors blend.
    9. 9
      Cook time is stand time.

      Loved this salad! Thank you so much for posting it. I also roasted the beet -- just till tender. I used two oranges instead of three. Followed the recipe exactly elsewise. Loved the zippy heat of the dressing. Elmotoo was right; it WAS quite PERKY! Yum!

      This is awesome! Were the beets supposed to be raw?? I roasted them - 3 small beets & 3 oranges. The dressing was quite PERKY. I was told I should have doubled the recipe. Finicky family. ;) Thanks!!
