What a treat for the senses this salad is. It's fabulous to serve on just about any occasion from Sunday brunch to a holiday meal. There is just something classic about the flavors of fresh spinach and strawberries. Add in mandarin oranges and you have a yummy salad. Celery, parsley, and green onions add a bit of crunch and a slight onion flavor. We loved the candied almonds on top. The homemade vinaigrette is light and perfect to dress the salad with.

How to Make Mandarin Orange Strawberry Spinach Salad

Test Kitchen Tips
Raspberry vinegar can be hard to find. If you need a substitute, red wine vinegar would work (the flavor will be slightly different). Salad oil is an oil with a light taste like vegetable or canola oil.
