      This is a quick and easy salad that tastes delicious.  I was shocked when my husband said "If all spinach tasted this good I would eat it everyday".  He's a bit of a smart alec (and let's just say, not the biggest fan of whole foods), so I was quite surprised that he liked this salad so much.  I took this recipe from Dr. Barnard's "Cancer Survivor Guide" which can be found here.


      Spinach Salad with Citrus Fruit  - Makes 6 servings


      Brazil nuts in this recipe provide crunch and selenium—a potent cancer-fighting antioxidant. Just one Brazil nut per day supplies your daily requirement of selenium.


      10 ounces chopped fresh spinach

      1 cup berries or grapes, or 10 strawberries, sliced

      1 can (10 ounces) mandarin or clementine oranges or grapefruit sections, drained and rinsed, or 1 1/3 cup of fresh fruit

      1 tablespoon sunflower seeds

      1 tablespoon chopped unsalted Brazil nuts

      1/4 cup fat-free raspberry vinaigrette


      Toss ingredients together and serve.


      This delicious colorful salad should be eaten immediately after tossing with dressing.
