Asian Spinach & Chicken Salad with Tangerines

Asian Spinach & Chicken Salad with Tangerines


Sweet and tangy, this salad can be eaten on its own or with the addition of grilled or roasted seafood, chicken or beef. Oranges and grapefruit can be substituted for the tangerines and arugula, watercress, or lamb’s lettuce make a tasty addition to the spinach. If you’re packing it for lunch put the dressing in a small plastic container so the salad won’t wilt.
