Ingredients

Organic Baby Spinach or other baby greens
Clementine or tangerine
Fresh mango slices
Organic raspberries
Walnuts

Citrus  Dressing
5-6 Tbl. Orange Juice
one Tbl. Olive Oil or Mac Nut Oil or Walnut Oil
Salt & pepper to taste (optional)

Directions

1. Wash & spin dry the spinach. Wash & peel one clementine or tangerine. Separate the sections. Wash, peel & slice about 1/2 mango. Wash & drain raspberries. Place all in a serving bowl & toss.
2. Add dressing and optional salt & pepper. Toss again and serve chilled.
(Feel free to add fresh herbs such as parsley or oregano. Make the flavor your own.)

Variation: I recently bought some organic baby kale. This can be used in place of spinach.
