I had a similar salad in a restaurant and thought it was great, so I came up with this recipe to prepare at home. I love the way the light, sweet dressing tops the refreshing salad ingredients. — Kate Reynolds, Seattle, Washington

Ingredients

  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons raspberry jam or spreadable fruit
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, torn
  • 1 red apple, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Directions

  1. Drain oranges, reserving 1/2 cup juice. In a jar with tight-fitting lid, combine oil, jam, vinegar and reserved juice; shake well. In a large salad bowl, toss oranges, spinach, apple and pecans. Serve with the dressing.
