Spinach-and-Orange Salad with Almonds and Sweet-Sesame DressingSubmitted by: JEREMY_PATRICIA
IntroductionThis 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.

Absolutely fantastic!!! I just inhaled it now...
I didn't have all of the ingredients so I made some substitutes. Rice wine vinegar, purevia sweetner (1/2 amt since it's sweeter than sugar), chili powder, and regular soysauce but 1/4 less. Turned out wonderful. I can't wait to make it again! - 9/28/10
