Sweet Spinach Salad

3 Tbls. Orange Juice Concentrate
2 Tbls. sugar
2 Tbls. cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. chopped onion
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 1/2 Tbls. Poppy seeds

1 pkg. (10 oz) fresh baby spinach
1 can (15 oz.) drained mandarin oranges
3/4 c. mozzarella cheese
2/3 c. sliced almonds

In a blender, combine the orange juice concentrate, sugar, vinegar, onion and salt. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream. Stir in poppy seeds. Transfer to a small pitcher or bowl. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until chilled.
On salad plates arrange the spinach, mandarin oranges, cheese and almonds. Drizzle with the dressing. Enjoy!
I love salads! What more can I say? I have never tried this dressing before, but I can tell you it WILL be in my favorite file!
You can add grilled chicken to the salad to make it a more filling meal.
