How to make it
- For dressing:
- Combine all ingredients in blender and puree. Taste for salt and peppers. This can be made up to the day before and refrigerated.
- For salad:
- Remove roots and any thick stems from the spinach and rinse thoroughly in cold running water. (Double check, spinach can be very dirty.) Spin or drain spinach to dry completely.
- The salad is composed, on either individual plates or a buffet platter, as follows:
- 1. A bed of spinach
- 2. Orange slices, onion rings and jicama spears artfully arranged on spinach
- 3. Pomegranate seeds and walnuts sprinkled on.
- 4. Dressing drizzled to taste.
- When I tested it at home... I put on glass platter... would make a georgous center item for Christmas buffet! The red and green!
