I'm Martin from LA. Hope to help everybody have great time with my recipes!

This raspberry spinach salad is a modest but very colorful and tasty enhancement to a typical salad of mixed greens. Combine a helping of baby salad greens with a bunch of baby spinach, toss in some toasted walnuts, and garnish with a generous serving of fresh raspberries and a few slices of clementine or mineola for color contrast. A delicious flax seed oil based dressing tops it off!

Ingredients

Salad:

1 large bunch spinach or 4 cups baby spinach leaves
4 cups baby salad greens
1/2 cup walnuts
1 clementine or mineola
1 pint fresh rasbperries

Dressing:

1/4 cup best quality olive oil
1/4 cup cold pressed flax seed oil
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1 shallot or 1 small garlic clove, diced
1 tsp Dijon mustard or 1/2 tsp dry powdered mustard

Directions

1. Wash and spin dry the spinach (and the salad greens if they are not prewashed). You can use a salad spinner such as the one at right to quickly spin dry any salad greens. Add to a large wooden salad bowl.

2. Toast the walnuts in a small frying pan with 1 tsp olive oil, medium temperature, until they begin to hiss and brown slightly. You can toss them, or turn them with tongs, to check both sides - be careful not to burn them.

3. Carefully wash the raspberries and let drain in a sieve.

4. Peel and section the clementine or mineola Place the citrus and raspberries atop the greens.

5. Combine the dressing ingredients in a pint mason jar or a salad dressing bottle. Shake vigourously, taste and adjust tartness as desired (too tart: add a quarter teaspoon sugar; not tart enough, ad a teaspon more vinegar).

6. Pour the dressing onto the salad and toss carefully, then sprinkle the toasted walnuts on top and serve.
