This simple Crunchy Sweet Spinach Salad takes about 5 minutes to make and satisfies your craving for both crunchiness and sweetness.
How about a quick side salad to add to your supper? This Crunchy Sweet Spinach Salad is tasty and good for you. The nice, deep green spinach provides lots of Vitamin K (good for preventing heart disease, clotting your blood, and building strong bones) and essential minerals, and the oranges add vitamins, folate, potassium, and sweetness. Cucumbers and celery provide the crunch. We like to add Brianna’s (vegan) Poppyseed Dressing to this salad.

Four Ingredients in Crunchy Sweet Spinach Salad
This Crunchy Sweet Spinach Salad has only four ingredients and takes just a couple minutes to throw together. I try to keep small containers of Mandarin oranges on hand to add that sweetness to salads and casseroles. The complete salad is light, refreshing and good for you.
Do you eat a salad every day? No? Neither do I, but I aspire toward that goal. A good salad can provide wonderful fiber, Vitamin K and iron, and loads of other nutritional benefits. Salads have been known to lower blood sugar and blood pressure, too.
Serve it with a delightful, Grilled Spatchcocked Chicken and you have an amazing meal. I think you’re gonna love it.
I only used a chef’s knife and cutting board for this salad. What would you use? What you really need is some terrific dinnerware, right?
