This is a wonderful and refreshing salad that I got from Best of Bridge. I played around with it a bit and added a few other fresh fruits to it. This is yummy and great to offset a very rich main dish, such as my Death to Dieter's Lasagna.

  1. Combine all dressing ingredients, mix well and refrigerate.
  2. Make well ahead to allow flavors to blend.
  3. Taste dressing and adjust sugar/vinegar for your sweet/tart taste preferences.
  4. Tear fresh spinach into bite sized pieces, wash and pat dry.
  5. Wash strawberries, drain, pat dry and cut in thirds.
  6. Shake dressing container well and toss with spinach, strawberries, kiwi and mandarin orange sections just before serving, otherwise the spinach will wilt.
  7. This makes a wonderfully tart, slightly sweet and very colorful salad!
