After all the food we ate on vacation, I wanted to fix something a little lighter Monday night for dinner. I love fixing salads and adding grilled chicken and this strawberry spinach salad is so quick and easy it was what was for dinner on Monday.
The salad itself is a combination of spinach, sliced strawberries and toasted almonds. The thing that pushes the salad up a notch is the dressing. Here's the ingredients:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
Put the olive oil, white wine vinegar, sugar and paprika in the blender and give it a whirl.
Then stir in the sesame and poppy seeds. Mix well.
Fry up the chicken. I love using the Tyson Grilled and Ready frozen chicken. We always have a bag in the freezer to assist in quick and easy meals.
Toss the spinach, strawberries, almonds and dressing. Top with chicken. That's it -- easy as could be! We also have this salad without the chicken to accompany meals. Either way, it's a winner salad.
