Spinach Salad with Turkey

Recipe: Spinach Salad with Turkey

Replacing everyday salad greens with fresh leaf spinach kicks up this salad’s nutritional value six ways from Sunday. Tasty turkey breast meat adds protein, and orange juice gives a tangy kick to the dressing. You might even call this a salad for people who don’t really like salad!

  • 2 tsp. olive oil

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
