– 1c. torn spinach
– 1c. seedless grapes halved
– 1/4 c. toasted slivered almonds
– 1lg. can of mandarin orange segments, chilled and drained

In small jar with tight-fitting lid, combine all dressing ingredients; shake well in large bowl combine lettuce, spinach, grapes, almonds, and orange segments. Just before serving, toss some of dressing with salad.
