Spinach mandarine salad
This simple salad is full of flavors from fresh spinach, soaked almonds, crunchy cucumber, diced tomatoes combined with the sweetness of juicy mandarins. I used the canned mandarines from costco that come with juice and are very sweet, you can use fresh mandarins if you want and add a little honey in the dressing.

Dressing is a mixture of lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper.

This salad is surely going to leave you feeling healthier and happier :)
enjoy
