Ingredients

1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained (reserve juice) – set aside
4 ounces (4 cups) fresh spinach *
1 cucumber, seeded & chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1 can of sliced water chestnuts (chop, if desired)
1-1/2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
14 to 16 ounce package frozen peas, slightly thawed
5 to 6 eggs, coarsely chopped

Dressing:
1-1/2 cup mayonnaise
1-1/2 Tablespoons mustard
1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon coriander, optional
2 Tablespoons reserved mandarin orange juice


DRESSING: Combine dressing ingredients. Set aside.


SALAD: Layer in 13” x 9” pan, in order given:


1. Spinach, Cucumber, Red Onion, Water Chestnuts, Chicken, Peas, Eggs


2. Spread dressing over salad. Place individual mandarin oranges on dressing, (in columns or decoratively).


NOTE:


- I use one small (whole) bag of baby spinach


- Tastes delicious with OR without the chicken (such as, when another main course is served)
