Do you ever come across recipes you’ve written down on a piece of paper and can’t recall where it came from? I wish I could remember where I got this recipe to give credit where credit is due, but I don’t have that information. I didn’t even write the name of the salad down. I may have been watching a cooking show. I spent some time online looking to see if I could find it there and had no luck, but found so many other citrus and spinach salads that looked great. Anyway, this is a tasty one and I’d like to share it with you now, while citrus is in abundance.
5 oz fresh spinach
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1 cup orange segments
1 large granny smith apple, cut up
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/3 cup pecans
feta, to sprinkle over the top
grilled chicken (optional)
Combine all of the ingredients and toss. Sprinkle feta over the top.
4 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar (I didn’t have this on hand and used champagne wine vinegar)
2 – 4 teaspoons sugar (or honey)
1/8 teaspoons each paprika, onion powder
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
Combine all dressing ingredients. Drizzle over salad.
