Spinach Salad Variation No. 906

Chicken sausages were on sale at the new Whole Foods this week, so I picked up some of the my favorites, the ones with spinach, garlic, and feta. For an accompaniment, I cobbled together this spinach salad, and it was pretty tasty.

Spinach Salad with Winter Fruits

1 bag baby spinach leaves
2 navel oranges
1/2 purple onion, sliced thinly
seeds from 1 pomegranate
2 oz goat cheese
raspberry vinaigrette

Peel the orange with a knife and supreme the wedges into a salad bowl. Add the spinach leaves and the onion slices. Toss with the vinaigrette. Salt and pepper to taste. Plate. Top each salad with a few dollops of goat cheese and a spoonful of pomegranate seeds.
