I thought I’d share one of my favorite salad recipes. It’s nutritious and gluten-free – and the addition of sliced oranges brighten the flavor of the spinach. If you like your dressing a bit spicy, you can add a splash of hot sauce!
Fresh Baby Spinach and Fruit with Pecan Dressing
¾ cup pecan pieces, lightly toasted
2 oranges, peeled and sliced
2 apples, peeled and chopped
10 oz spinach
2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion
¼ cup pecan pieces, lightly toasted
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp dry mustard
½ cup white vinegar
½ cup canola oil
Toast 1 cup pecans in a frying pan or 350°F (175°C) oven for 5-8 minutes until lightly brown and fragrant. Reserve ¼ cup for the dressing and toss the rest with the oranges, apples, and spinach. Combine the dressing ingredients in a blender or blend using a hand-held blender. Pour over salad ingredients and toss.

Sam O’Brien, aka “Dr. Eye Candy,” is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his “fiancée” helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his “fiancée” ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted. Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!
