Spinach Salad with Fava Beans and Satsuma Vinaigrette

What do you do when greens and satsumas are both back in season? You make a salad! Gather the ingredients and embrace your inner chef with this easy-to-make recipe.


  • 6 satsumas or clementines, divided
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup very thinly sliced red onion, rinsed and drained
  • 15-ounces of fava beans
  • 1 (1-pound) package baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


In a large bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup satsuma juice (from about 2 satsumas), vinegar, mustard, and pepper. Use a paring knife to cut the peel and pith from remaining satsumas. Working over the bowl to catch any additional juices, cut out each segment and add to the vinaigrette. Add onion, beans, spinach, and parsley and toss well. Serve immediately.
