1 6-ounce packages baby spinach
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toastedWhisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Cut the orange peel and white pith from the oranges.

You've already cooked a big meal so here is the simple and quick way to make these strawberries: Melt dark chocolate nuggets or pieces in the microwave or on the stove (using a double boiler); dip strawberries in melted chocolate; place on wax and chill until chocolate is hardened or cool enough to eat.
Still too much work? Just serve a plate full of strawberries with pieces of dark chocolate on the side instead!
