Spinach Salad w/ Orange Sesame Dressing


Trim the spinach stems and carefully wash the leaves. Dry, then tear any large leaves into bite-sized pieces. Place in a salad bowl along with the pepper, onion, and orange slices. Toast the sesame seeds in a 400 degree F toaster oven or regular oven for 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender and grind into a powder. Add the vinegar, orange juice concentrate, and water. Blend to mix. Pour over salad and toss just before serving. The toasted sesame seeds add wonderful flavor to this salad. (Serves 4 to 6)
