Scallop & Orange Spinach Salad

I love seafood scallops...such a wonderful taste and texture.  Add a few ingredients to them and you have a wonderful salad. This one looks like a real winner for a light summer dinner.

I just posted another salad that I really love. It's a "Grilled Romaine with blue cheese and hot bacon vinaigrette. I think if you added the scallops to this salad it would be a wonderful add on.

Here's the link to the "Grilled Romaine salad"... If you like the Scallop and Orange Salad, you will love the grilled romaine one too!

Like so many others, I collect "Pins" on Pinterest. I don't even know how I kept all my recipes and craft ideas straight over the years. Pinterest has given us one really organized place to put all those ideas that we hope to get to someday. Also, we can now carry our recipes with us at all times. It really comes in handy at the grocery store. No more notes. Between Google grocery list and Pinterest, I never forget anything anymore. 

Below you will find a few "Pins" that relate to seafood. If you are interested, you can visit my "Seafood Boards" under my "Food Boards" for more great recipes. Also, I have organized my "Other Boards" so that anyone could find whatever they are looking for. If you have a moment, you might want to check them out. Just click on the Pinterest logo or my picture and you will be redirected to my "Other Boards".
