One of the better spinach and orange salad's we've tried. The walnuts really make it. I left the honey out (diabetic), it was delicious anyway. I made the whole recipe, there are only two of us!! We pigged out on half of it on Fri. night and on Sat. night I stir fried the other half, very quickly, just enough to heat through, it was wonderful. The only thing I changed was the orange juice, had no concentrate, so used fresh.Thanks for sharing.

Very good, lovely flavors. No walnuts so used pecans; no o.j. concentrate so used fresh. Also used fresh oranges instead of mandarin. Served for guests w/steak and twice baked potatoes.Thanks Pan Nan

Nice light recipe... I made mine with fresh Valencia oranges, regular spinach rather than baby (more bite!), and fresh OJ. Thanks for posting :)
