Spinach, Orange, and Avocado Salad

I first learned this recipe as a whitewater raft guide on the Salmon River in Idaho.  Every guest loved it and I’ve made it for our wagon ride dinner guests, who’ve also enjoyed it.  It’s a wonderful, cool salad that is perfect for hot days.  Try it and tell me what you think!  Don’t feel like making it?  Book a dinner ride with us and let us do the work!

Ingredients
  1. pre-washed baby spinach (1 bag)
  2. slivered almonds
  3. 1 avocado
  4. sliced mandarin oranges (drained)
  5. dried cranberries
  6. poppyseed dressing (I recommend Brianna's)
Instructions
  1. In a large salad bowl, mix together ingredients. (portions are personal, you might like more almonds and fewer cranberries. I pretty much just throw a handful of each in.)
  2. Drizzle with poppyseed dressing, tossing salad until you have the coating of dressing as heavy as you like.
  3. Serve.
Notes
  1. This is an easy one to make right there on site. Because it's tossed with the dressing it doesn't store altogether well, but I have had it a day later and it was okay.
