Spinach Salad

  • 10 oz. bag fresh spinach
  • 2 oz. (1/2 a pkg.) Saladena goat cheese crumbles
  • 11 oz. can Dole mandarin oranges
  • 1 ts. good olive oil, or sesame oil (hot chili sesame oil is tasty but spicy)
  • a couple dashes cayenne pepper (unless using spicy oil)
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ (optional)
Rinse spinach and spin dry. Tear into small pieces and divide into two large bowls. Drain the oranges, reserving the juice, and divide the oranges between the two bowls. Put the juice in a small jar, along with the oil and the finely crumbled goat cheese and the cayenne (if the oil isn't spicy.) Shake well, and pour over the salads. Sprinkle each bowl with 1/8 cup of the
toasted wheat germ, if desired.

This sounds good... might have to try it sometime soon. How are you doing? Hope all is well.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
