Salad Recipes: Sweet Spinach, Fruit & Chicken Salad

sweet spinach fruit and chicken salad cover

This is one of my favorite summer salad recipes to make.  It’s sweet and delicious.

Salad:
Spinach
iceberg lettuce
Mandarin Oranges (drained)
Strawberries (cleaned and cut in half)
Ramen noodles
Chicken breasts (Cooked and sliced)

Dressing:
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup rice vinegar
Seasoning packet from Ramen Noodles

Lightly brown the noodles .  These will be your ‘croutons’.  Wash and dry the spinach and lettuce and add to your serving bowl.  Drain your oranges and add to the salad along with strawberries, noodles and chicken.

For the dressing, combine the vinegar, sugar, oil and seasoning and whisk well.  The oil and vinegar will separate so mix well before serving.  I serve individually rather than pouring on top of the whole salad that way you can make sure it’s mixed well.

If you think ahead (or have leftover dressing) make your dressing and allow to sit over night (do not refrigerate).  Mix well.  Sitting out at room temperature should help the mixture from separating.

So while the dressing doesn’t make it the healthiest thing in the world - it’s SO good!  :)
