Salad is an essential part of every meal, but let’s face it, it does get a little boring sometimes. I’m always looking for ways to make it little more exciting. I start with the basic, what kind of greens? Then I look for color. And whatever may be seasonal. Finally, I choose some fun crunchy toppings to complete it. This salad of baby spinach with mandarin oranges is just one example.
10 ounces of baby spinach
2 mandarin oranges
1 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened
1 cup walnut pieces
Peel and section the mandarin oranges. Assemble four salad plates, first with spinach, then with mandarin orange sections. Sprinkle coconut flakes and walnut pieces on top.
A simple mustard vinaigrette would complement this nicely.
