Its summer time and what better way to use fresh produce than in making this salad. simple easy and healthy, here is the recipe adapted from the blog.

Here’s what you’ll need (recipe adapted from

5 ozs of  Spinach
handful of fresh strawberries (8-10 at least) rinsed & sliced
3 oranges – peeled & cut in wedges
1/2 – 3/4 cup of roasted pine nuts

For the dressing:
1 Land O Lakes® Butter Half Stick
1/4 cup of EVOO
zest of 1 orange
2-3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
