Spinach Salad with Orange Segments and a Lime vinaigrrette

Cin Straw's Kitchen Recipe

By Cin Straw's Kitchen NanatomyGrands

I have made this very salad many times, it is sooooo good. So I changed the name and added pix.
I love baby spinach in salads, and fruit just adds to the flavor.
Then using garlic from my garden is a plus.

Now add the vinaigrrette...oh my!!!

I've added an option to use strawberries and pecans (along with all the other ingredients) instead of the mandrain orange segments.

Just give it a try, either option, I think you'll like it, I sure do.
