Spinach Salad

I noticed that lately all my posts are about yoga and weight loss. I decided I need more food/recipe posts. I first made this salad after we'd had a meat-filled weekend. It's super fast and easy to make. Nice and light. Perfect for these hot days.

In the photo there's quinoa in the mix. If I'm really lazy, I just skip the quinoa. I think I'm going to make this for dinner tonight and I'll spend the time to cook the quinoa.

Spinach Salad

9 oz. bag of spinach
4 oz. feta, crumbled
1/2 cup dried cranberries
2 snack cups mandarin oranges, drained
1 c. quinoa, cooked and cooled (cooks just like rice)
1/3 c. Newman's Own Lite Lime Vinaigrette

slivered almonds

Basically dump everything in a bowl and toss it. Top with slivered almonds. That's it!

That looks totally great. About the only way I have any interest in Mandarin Oranges is a salad like this.

I forgot, I also add very thinly sliced red onion to this if I happen to have one available.
