Preheat outdoor grill or broiler. Place Vidalia Onion slices on a grill or broiler pan. Grill until slightly softened and golden brown, about 3 minutes; turn and cook until tender, about 3 minutes longer. To prepare dressing, combine in a small bowl orange juice, oil, vinegar, honey, salt and black pepper; spoon over grilled onions. Serve, if desired, on a bed of spinach leaves topped with chopped tomatoes and drizzled with dressing.
