Helpful hints

  • One-half cup raw spinach contains 156 mg potassium. One-half cup cooked spinach (measured after cooking) contains 419 mg potassium.
  • You may substitute leaf lettuce, or use spinach and lettuce.
  • For a variation, add salad dressing to salad and chill 3 to 4 hours before serving. Portion size is 3/4 cup (smaller because the spinach wilts after the vinaigrette dressing is added).
  • This salad is delicious using Wishbone® Light Raspberry-Walnut Vinaigrette® salad dressing.

Spinach-Mandarin Salad

water chesnuts are not listed on the ingredient list. What volume to use? Dietitian comment: You may have missed it on the list. The recipe included one 5-ounce can of water chestnuts.
