    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 :)

    I thought this was terrific!! I used it as a base to serve breaded baked drumsticks on and served with a grain salad as well. It made a teriffic lunch for 5 of us. Thanks for the post PanNan

    Concept is great but mandarain oranges were too mushy for salad even after draining. The dressing lacked flavor. I will use fresh segmented oranges and search for new dressing with more flavor.

    Nan, this was very good. I don't use frozen orange juice, so substituted one tablespoon of fresh orange juice with a little orange zest. PERFECT, another winner from your files! Thanks for sharing.
