Warm Spinach and Orange Salad in Asian Vinaigrette

Whew! How time flies! It was just a few weeks (one month, actually!) ago when Ana Cristina, my youngest daughter, brought home for the second time Yummy Magazines. Here they all are!
I have already featured in this site an introductory post about Yummy Magazine and a number of its yummy recipes, as well.  Browsing over the September 2012 issue, I was inspired to cook the following dishes which are all featured in my recent posts ---


Today, I'm featuring another veggie salad recipe which I also found in the same issue of Yummy Magazine --- the Warm Spinach and Orange Salad in Asian Vinaigrette. Yes, after browsing over this same issue for the nth time! :)

200 grams spinach leaves
2 oranges, peeled and separated into segments
1 red onion, sliced thinly
The main ingredients
For the Asian Vinaigrette:
1/3 cup canola oil
2 tbsps rice vinegar
2 tsps soy sauce 
1 tsp garlic paste (to make: place peeled cloves of a whole head of garlic in a mortar and pestle. Add 1     tsp iodized salt. Mash until mixture has turned into a paste.)
1 1/2 tsps sugar
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp calamansi juice

1. Place all ingredients for the salad in a bowl.
 2. In a saucepan, combine all ingredients for the vinaigrette. Cook over low heat, simmering for 2 minutes.
3. Pour hot dressing over salad.
4.  Toss well. Serve warm.

See, very simple and easy to prepare. You will love the the vinaigrette, believe me! It made a perfect partner to the Tuna Steak slice I served Billy, my husband, for dinner last weekend.
Try this, I dare you, and you will give it not just another try! Meanwhile, I have another browsing to do... the cauliflower and broccoli florets are waiting for me. Enjoy the weekend!

  2. Thank you, Krista! Credits to @Yummyph for the recipe :)

  3. This looks so delicious. I used to eat a similar salad ALL the time, when I was in Bible college. I lost 20 lbs, those 2 years, too. (Coincidence? I think not! :-) That salad was cold, though.

    I can't wait to try this! Especially, 10 years later, when my preacher husband and I are losing weight again. We're both blogging about our journeys!

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Linda. Please share how your Spinach Salad goes!

  4. Great early Spring salad. Still tons of oranges in the grocery store and spinach is just starting to come in season. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with us on foodie friday.

  5. Woah, that shrimp stew looks seriously amazing!


Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment. Would love to see you back.
