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.

Note: 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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
