Spinach Salad With Orange-Ginger Dressing

After all the Crockpot /  slow cooker meals last week I decided to add a couple of salad recepies to go along with them.  What could be better than a cold salad on a hot day. I got one today that would make Popeye happy.

Spinach Salad With Orange-Ginger Dressing

4 cups fresh spinach, thoroughly washed, drained and patted dry.
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1 large orange, peeled sliced and seeded
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup orange juice concentrate
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp fresh ginger root, peeled and grated
Salt and pepper to taste

   Divide the spinach among four salad plates.  Top with avocado and orange.  Whisk together next 5 ingredients to make a dressing, drizzle on each salad.  Top with freshly ground black pepper.

Makes 4 servings.
