I'm not much of a salad person. I'm just not. Practically the only salads I will eat willingly are spinach based or so totally doused in toppings the lettuce is invisible. I found this recipe on pinterest and thought it would be a good option for nights when I want to eat healthily. They don't come very often, but when they do, I like to be armed and ready.
This salad couldn't be easier to make and is perfect for summer when it's hot and you don't want to turn on the stove or oven. Fiance even liked it and he generally isn't a raw spinach person. I will be making this as regularly as he will tolerate. That's how much I like it. I can't encourage you enough to try it.
Spinach Salad with all the Fixings
recipe from here
8 cups chopped spinach (1 bag)
1 cup halved cherry or pear tomatoes
1/2 cup corn (I used frozen and just followed the microwave instructions)
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken (I probably used closer to 2 cups)
1 large avocado, sliced
1/3 cup crumbled goat or feta cheese (I used about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts (I used about 1/3 of a cup)
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1.5 tablespoon Dijon mustard (but I like my dressing extra tangy, feel free to change it up)
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
As you can see, I made some changes. Feel free to switch up the amounts to suit your tastes.
