Spinach-Strawberry Salad

A foodie friend of mine once told me that the best salads have four main ingredients: greens, fruit, cheese & nut.  The following recipe may not be new to you, but it's a very tasty go-to salad.  It pairs beautifully with the Maple-Glazed Salmon.

10-14 oz. baby spinach
1 cup fresh sliced strawberries
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
4 oz. feta cheese
6 oz. can of Mandarin oranges (optional)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
low-fat poppy seed dressing

     So simple!  Just prepare all ingredients through Mandarin oranges as indicated.   Right before serving the salad, add in slivered almonds and dressing and toss well.  Delicious and nutritious!
