There are refreshing and healthy summer salad recipes that fit all occasions, whether for big family gatherings or simple dinners at home, Teresa Henson, Extension specialist-program outreach coordinator for the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff’s School of Agriculture, Fisheries and Human Sciences, said.

“For a summertime feel, consider serving this salad at summer picnics,” she said. “Oranges help brighten up this tasty and easy-to-prepare veggie salad. Top it off with your favorite vinaigrette dressing to add a hint of flavor.”

Makes 5 servings

Ingredients

5 cups spinach leaves (packed, washed, and dried well) 
1/2 red onion (sliced thin) 
1/2 red pepper (sliced) 
1 cucumber (whole, sliced) 
2 oranges (peeled and chopped into bite-size pieces) 
1/3 cup vinaigrette dressing (“lite,” around 15 calories per tablespoon or less) 

Directions

Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss again. Serve immediately.
