Food for New Year's: Citrus Spinach Salad

Naturally sweet, delicious, and healthy, citrus spinach salad will start the evening right.

| January/February 1989

Neither fruit salad nor spinach salad, our citrus spinach salad is an elaboration on both. Dieting guests will appreciate it, but even those who aren’t especially attentive to healthy eating may find a lot to like.

This recipe serves 4. Double or triple the quantities if you have more guests to accommodate.


4 cups packed spinach leaves, well washed
1 cup orange sections
1 cup grapefruit sections
1/2 cup red onion rings


1/2 cup grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
2 tablespoons grated onion
1/4 teaspoon salt, if desired
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
