Eat Your Greens

I love salads with a lot of stuff in them. This is a salad that you can still tailor to your tastes, however, by dressing it with your favorite vinaigrette.

Beautiful Salad


8 cups baby spinach leaves
1/2 medium red onion, sliced and separated into rings
1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 1/2 cups sweetened dried cranberries
1 cup honey-roasted sliced almonds
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 cup balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing, or to taste (the recipe suggests balsamic vinaigrette, but any kind of vinaigrette works well with this salad)


Place spinach in a large bowl. Top with remaining ingredients, except dressing. As you serve, drizzle dressing over each salad.

Notes: If I remember correctly, when my mom originally made this, she forgot to get balsamic vinaigrette, so she just set out all of the salad dressings she had...and we discovered that this salad was fantastic with pretty much any kind of dressing. So, dress this salad to suit your tastes and enjoy!
