Tangelo, Strawberry, and Spinach Oh My!

I never thought that I would be one of those people who ate their salad without dressing. Being gluten free, I’ve had to start skipping dressing when I eat out. Having dressing is not worth taking a risk. Plus lately, I’ve been taking advantage of all the gorgeous citrus. And after a few great salads, I think I just might be finished with dressing. Tonight’s mix was an organic baby spinach and local green leaf, topped with slices of tangelo and strawberry. I squeezed a tbsp. of tangelo juice on top.

I don’t even miss the dressing! The local lettuce is grown hydroponically. It gives the lettuce a lighter than air feel and a tender taste.

Oh man...I usually *do* take a risk on salad dressings when I'm out. But, sigh, you're right - it's so not worth the risk!!!

Those pictures make the salad look so beautiful and delicious. I ought to try going without dressing at home.

Yummy! The juiciness of the fruits must make a nice little dressing all its own with each bite.
