Mandarin Orange Spinach Salad

by | Jun 22, 2015 | CSA Member Updates, Recipes


1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon lemon zest
3 1/2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons peeled and grated ginger
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoons salt, to taste

Wonton strips
12 wonton wrappers, sliced into 1/2-inch thick strips
Vegetable oil, for frying

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, grilled and sliced
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 bunch spinach
2 cups snow peas, sliced into halves
1 1/2 cups matchstick carrots
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 1/2 (15 oz) cans mandarin oranges (no sugar added), drained well (fresh would work too)
1/2 cup cilantro, stems removed
Black and white sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)
For the dressing:
1. Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until well emulsified and ginger and garlic are finely minced.
2. Pour into an airtight container and allow to rest in refrigerator while preparing salad (shake or stir before adding to salad).

For the wonton strips:
1. Heat about 3/4 to 1-inch of oil in a skillet to 360 degrees (maintain this temperature, reduce heat as needed).
2. Add just enough wonton strips without overcrowding.
3. Fry just until halfway cooked, then using metal tongs (grabbing as many as you can at once) rotate to opposite side and cook until just lightly golden.
4. Remove and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Immediately sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and salt before they dry.

For the salad:
1. Add all salad ingredients to a large salad bowl and toss.
2. Drizzle with dressing and gently toss.
3. Top each serving with desired amount of wonton strips and optional sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

Yield: 4 servings
