I usually use baby spinach in this recipe. Nice for a light lunch during the summertime.

Excellent. I sautéed a pound of decent sized raw shrimp (25-30/lb)in one T EVO and one T butter and garlic and crushed red pepper to taste for about 3 or 4 minutes then sliced each in half and topped the salad with the shrimp pieces. Then the honey mustard dressing. Left off the pecans - forgot them - was still delicious. Will definitely make again, this time with the pecans. The flavors of the orange, the slightly sweet/tart tast of the dressing and the shrimp all melded togethr beautifully. Thanks for the recipe.
