Recipe Swap: Summer Salads

Tammy over at Tammy's Times is hosting a summer salad recipe swap!! What fun!! Pop on over to her blog and get all the details of how you can share your favorite summer salad!!

I posted this a little while back, but since it's our favorite, I just HAD to post it again. We just love it here at our home!!

Spinach Salad
1 bag of triple washed spinach (so you don't have to wash it yourself)
1 can of mandarin oranges (I like the BIG can!!!)
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup zesty Italian dressing

Put spinach, mandarin oranges and red onion in a serving bowl. For the dressing, carefully combine mayonnaise and Italian dressing until completely mixed together. Serve dressing on the side.

Everyone seems to really like this very simple salad (even those non-spinach eaters!!). You could even put in some sliced fresh mushrooms or even some sliced avocado. Recently, we grilled chicken and chopped it up into bite-size pieces and tossed it in with the salad. YUMMYY!!!
