In the countryside where orange orchards are common, families press their own orange oil to make orange blossom water. In the United States, orange blossom water can be found in specialty stores. Even children will love the unique combination of soft and crunchy textures and sweet and sour tastes in this salad. Both the salad and dressing can be made in advance, and stored separately in the refrigerator. Pour dressing over salad just before serving. Serves 8 Serving Size: 3/4 cup Ingredients: 4 cups baby spinach 2 medium carrots, peeled and grated 1 navel orange, peeled and cut into segments 1/4 cup pitted dates Juice of 1 orange Juice of 1 lemon 1 teaspoon orange blossom water Freshly ground pepper, to taste Preparation: Arrange spinach on the bottom of a large serving dish.
