This delicious gourmet salad is part of our series on great 5 Minute Meals for the the busy workweek.  But, there is no need to reserve it simply for Monday thru Friday.  Bring it to your next potluck or serve it for a summer party.  No one will believe it only took you 5 minutes to make!


Difficulty: Easy * Preparation Time: 5 Min * Makes: 2-4



1 Medium Head Romain Lettuce

1 Medium Bag Baby Spinach

1 (12 oz.) Feta Cheese Crumbled

1 Can Sliced Orange (reserve the syrup)

1 Apple, chopped into bite sized pieces (sweeter apples works best)

Wash the lettuce and spinach and tear into bite sized pieces.  Drain well and place into large salad bowl and toss together.
