Mandarin Spinach Salad

I am always trying new and different salads to serve.  Many times I make a salad once and start trying new combinations.  This salad is one that I have made over and over.  It is perfect with grilled meats, poultry or fish.  Add grilled chicken and you have a main dish salad.  Easy to prepare with easy to find ingredients – my idea of a winning recipe.
