Notes

You can never go wrong with this spinach salad. It is easy to customize with your favourite proteins and fruits to suite your family palate. Some of the items you can add include;
  • Sweet potatoes - swap the chicken for a vegetarian spinach salad option then simply dice the sweet potatoes, toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar/honey/sweetener and roast. 
  • Fruits - Feel free to use your favourite crisp apple. Wash, core and slice them thinly before adding to the salad. You can also add pieces of mandarins, strawberries, grapes , cranberries or avocado.
  • Protein - You can add grilled/baked chicken, fish steaks, tofu, shrimp, bacon bits etc
  • Nuts - Add 1/4 cup of roasted pecans or walnuts to give it the crunch
  • Cheese - Sprinkle a handful of feta, goat cheese or parmesan
Double or triple the dressing ingredients and keep in the fridge for your next salad!
You can remove the chicken and pair with this Tasty Juicy Steak Kebabs , Easy Tender Garlic Steak Bites or this Surf n' Turf for a complete dish.
