I don't know how the original recipe would have come out, but w/ the way mine came out, I'd give it 5-stars! I made some minor adjustments: 1)I added in a clove of garlic as another reviewer recommended- it was strong at 1st, but great the next day, just right. 2)Secondly, after tasting the salad, I felt it was too "vinegary," (like another reviewer found it to be), so I added in another tbsp or 2 of oil & some more OJ (about 2-3 tbsps). An alternative would be to cut back on the vinegar to begin w/, to about 1/2 the amount. 3)The recipe says to stir in the spinach, onion & oranges right before serving, but the next day, after having sat in the dressing, the salad tasted sensational- MUCH better! The 1st day I would have given it 3-4 stars, but the second day I'd give it 5! The spinach leaves & rice really soak up the flavor. This is definitely a salad that's better to make the night before serving. I also added in some diced cooked chicken breast I had leftover from the night before & made it into a whole meal. That was delicious! I've submitted a photo of this recipe. Hope they approve it & post it.

Way too much rice for the rest of the ingredients. But rice was good and the left over portion will make another salad.

I MADE THIS SALAD FOR A LADIES LUNCHEON AND IT RECIEVED RAVE REVIEWS. I COOKED THE RICE IN SWANSON'S VEGETABLE BROTH AND ADDED DRIED CRANBERRIES FOR COLOR. WOULD MAKE THIS AGAIN IT IS A WINNER.

I varied the actual salad quite a bit so I can't comment on that, but this dressing is AMAZING. Seriously, it is one of the most delicious concoctions I've seen in a while! Thank you so much, I will use this as a salad dressing and a marinade. So good!

Based on a couple of reviews that said this dish was bland, I made some modifications and the dish was delicious. I toasted some slivered almonds and added about 1 1/2 tsp. of Mrs. Dash seasonings.

For added zip, to the orange juice mixture, add on clove minced fresh garlic. Works very well.

Great 'company' dish on a hot day. Served with BBQ chicken breast it made an awesome meal - highly recommend it!! The rice when cooling absorbs the orange juice and creates a really nice flavor.
