Mandarin Orange Strawberry Spinach Salad Recipe @pinch

What a treat for the senses this salad is. It is fabulous to serve on just about any occasion from Sunday brunch to a holiday meal. There is just something classic about the flavors of fresh spinach and strawberries. Add in mandarin oranges and you have a yummy salad. Celery, parsley, and green onions add a bit of crunch and a slight onion flavor. We loved the candied almonds on top. The homemade vinaigrette is light and perfect to dress the salad with. This is a true crowd havepleaser!
