Serves 6-8.

10 ounces fresh spinach leaves
1 (11-ounce) can mandarin orange sections, drained
½ small red onion, halved crosswise, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons toasted skin-on sliced almonds

Citrus-Garlic Dressing:

¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon Fredericksburg Farms German Stone Ground Mustard
⅓ cup raspberry-flavored vinegar
2 tablespoons Fredericksburg Farms Citrus Garlic Bread Dipping Mix
1 cup canola oil
Sea salt or kosher salt to taste


Remove large stems from spinach leaves; tear leaves into bite-size pieces. Place in a large salad bowl; add orange sections, onion, and almonds. Toss gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Make the dressing by placing all ingredients except canola oil in work bowl of food processor fitted with steel blade. Process until well blended, about 15 seconds. With machine running, add the canola oil through the feed tube in a slow, steady stream. Add salt, if needed. Process an additional 30 seconds to form a smooth emulsion.

To serve, drizzle desired amount of dressing over the salad and toss well. Serve at once.
