Spinach-and-Orange Salad with Almonds and Sweet-Sesame Dressing
Very Good 4.8/5
(15 ratings)

This is a nice spinach salad with oranges and almonds and the sweet-sesame dressing can be used as a great dip for raw veggies, spring rolls, and dumplings. The calories will be less if you use low-sodium soy sauce but they didn't have that listed.

This is a sweet, light, simple salad dressing that packs just 50 calories per tablespoon... It's a nice addition to green salad!

Great tasting and inexpencive alternative to other oriental dressings serving size : 1 tablespoon\

I did some checking on the comments on my dressing. to those who think corn syrup is bad try looking up a possible side effects list? whatever. i checked to see if there was any fat in it. ???? not. and if you want to use the following if you are really scared here's the comparison
corn syrup 60cal/tbs 16.3 carbs
Honey 64.4cal/tbs 17.5 carbs
Brown sugar 51.7cal/tbs 13.4 carbs
just a side note try looking at a label in a store bought oriental dressing to see what's in it and compare the cost that will convert you to homemade dressings in a hurry :)

This is a great dressing. I usually use mixed greens (salad) the tube from Costco. Add a few cranberry’s, none fat Feta (president) and a few sliced almonds.

I've been so disappointed with store bought light ranch and decided to make a homemade version. I played around with many recipes until I came up with something I liked. I'll never buy ranch again!
