Bites: Best Salad Ever: Mandarin Oranges and Spinach

citrus salad

This is my favorite salad! It has a delicious combination of sweet and tart with a lot of nutritious value.

Here’s what you need:

  • spinach
  • romaine lettuce
  • Mandarin oranges
  • tomato
  • slivered almonds
  • coconut
  • Italian dressing

Here’s what you do:

Wash your spinach and romaine and tear. Place in bowls.

Chop tomato into small bites. Place on top of lettuce bed.

Distribute Mandarin oranges over salad.

Pour a little of the juice from the oranges over the salad.

Sprinkle slivered almonds and coconut.

Add a few drops of Italian dressing for some extra zest. Not much dressing is needed with all the other flavors.

Enjoy!

Note: In addition to being delicious, this salad is great for people who need more iron in their diet (like me!). Spinach is a great source of iron. Also, the oranges and tomato are excellent sources of Vitamin C, which helps your body absorb iron.
