Delicious, refreshing salad that can really be adapted to your tastes. I got this from a friend and have had many rave reviews whenever I serve it.

Mmmm, this is a nummy salad and a great way to use up a few of those leftover Christmas mandarins! I changed the dressing a bit by adding a few slices of fresh ginger and running it through the blender.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a jar, combine all ingredients for the dressing.
  2. Shake well and refrigerate for at least one hour to blend flavours.
  3. (I make it the night before) In a heavy skillet, cook almonds and sugar over medium heat until sugar melts and coats almonds, stirring frequently.
  4. Cool.
  5. Break apart if necessary.
  6. In large bowl, combine spinach, celery and green onions.
  7. Just before serving, add almonds and orange segments.
  8. Toss gently.
  9. Pour dressing over salad and toss.
  10. P.S.I always double the amount of almonds because they really add a wonderful flavour to the salad-- and because some mysteriously disappear before they make it to the salad!
