Hi, I just wanted to say that a few years ago I was at a restaurant here in Conn. when I had a delicious salad that was almost the same as this spinach salad. It had the mandarin sections, but also had almonds and the dressing was out of this world. They wouldn't tell me at the restaurant, but it seemed like a light vinegar based dressing, with an orange bacon flavor. I wish I knew exactly what was in it. I think they called the salad mandarin almond.
