Spinach and Orange Salad

Spinach & OrangeSalad

Another delicious recipe from my old copy of ‘Cooking for Today’. I can’t find the book online but it may be out of print now.

I never thought of putting orange with spinach before -needs a little preparation but well worth it!

Spinach and Orange Salad

(serves 4)


8oz. / 225g young spinach leaves

For the dressing:

2-3 tablespoons lemon juice

2-3 tablespoons oil

1 teaspoon chopped thyme

½ an orange

salt and pepper



To make the dressing:

  1. Carefully peel the orange half and cut peel into fine strips.
  2. Place peel strips in a small pan, cover with water and bring to the boil.
  3. Cook for 3 minutes. Drain well, reserving orange strips, and cool.
  4. Mix together the lemon juice, oil and season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar. Add the thyme.
  5. Remove the pith from the orange half, chop into fairly small pieces and arrange in a salad bowl with the spinach leaves.
  6. Sprinkle over the fine strips of orange rind and dressing and serve at once

Bon Appetit!
