This colorful spinach salad has a secret ingredient—wheat germ—adding a nutty flavor without all the calories you find in nuts. Add some shrimp or grilled chicken and brown rice, and you have a meal.

Makes 4 Servings


1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon sesame oil

Pinch of salt

Fresh pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ


2 teaspoons sesame oil

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

4 ounces shitake mushrooms, stems removed and caps sliced

1/2 cup snow peas

4 cups baby spinach

1 orange, peeled and sectioned

1 small Kirby cucumber, peeled and diced

2 tablespoons sliced red onion

2 tablespoons Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

Pinch of salt

To make dressing, in small bowl whisk together mustard, ginger, lemon zest, lemon juice and honey. Whisk in sesame oil, salt and pepper. Add wheat germ and whisk until well combined.

To make salad, heat sesame oil in small skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and mushrooms and saute 1 to 2 minutes until mushrooms are soft. Add snow peas and cook until bright green and softened, about 1 more minute. Set aside and let cool.

In large bowl add spinach, orange sections, cucumber, red onion and wheat germ. Add cooled mushrooms and snow peas; season with salt and pepper. Stir dressing and add to salad; toss well and serve immediately.
