There's nothing like a delicious spring salad on a gorgeous 78 degree day! Sometimes it's so hot out that nothing else even sounds good. Anyone with me on that? This incredibly healthy and filling salad is totally delicious. I made this for my mom and I to share last night for dinner and it was a hit! I didn't have a recipe, I just added what I thought would be good and well, it was. ;)
The mixture of spinach, feta, chicken, red onion, cucumber, and walnuts provides you with nutrients from almost every food group! Score. I served this with fresh corn on the cob and sweet potato fries- perfection.
I (personally) prefer free-range natural chicken raised with no hormones and organic lettuce & spinach. I am excited to see more and more hormone-free chicken making it's way to the market, and the price 'is' coming down. Look for managers specials or know the days when your local grocery store puts meat on sale.
This is one of my favorite dressings in the whole world. I love the blend of strawberry and poppyseed and it goes well with almost any savory/sweet salad.
3-4 cups fresh spinach
1 head red romaine
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2-3/4 cup feta
1/4 red onion sliced into thin strips
1-2 chicken breasts grilled in olive oil, pepper, and salt
