skinless, boneless chicken breast half - cut into bite-size pieces
1 1/2 tablespoons
fresh spinach, stems removed
fresh strawberries, sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons
freshly ground black pepper to taste
I am the submitter of this recipe. Nowadays I often make the salad without the chicken, but when I do add chicken, there is no way it takes 20 minutes to cook it! I also have replaced the mayonnaise with plain yoghurt in the dressing. You may want extra strawberries and more spinach than the recipe states for 2 servings. Also, a touch of sugar in the dressing can be nice if you like things sweeter. Enjoy!
Tried this recipe for a luncheon I had, it was good, those attending said they really liked it, but personally, I would have preferred a sweeter dressing. The lime juice gave it a nice summery taste, but a little too bitter for me.
A refreshingly different salad. I used raspberries instead of strawberries. The sweetness of the raspberries went well with the mild taste of the dressing. I found that needed flavor was added by roasting the almonds with a bit of sugar and pepper.
Wonderful summer salad. I grilled my chicken instead of using the stove, and added a little fresh grated parmesan on the top. Simply delicious! Even my super-picky boyfriend liked this one :-)
This salad is delicious! I made it just as the recipe suggested and I wouldn't change a thing. My hubby liked it and he doesn't even like spinach or strawberries that much. Loved the dressing too. Will surely make this again ad again.
*REDUCED FAT VERSION*
Great flavors that work well together. The dressing is awesome but I always look at how can I cut the fat or calories and maintain the full flavor or even bump it a bit. I did this recipe just as described but I swapped out the milk for fat free half and half and added just a dash of water. I also used Mayo which is Olive oil based (Green lid by major brand) cutting all the saturated fat and cutting down on the non-saturated by about half.
Last thing I did was to zest the lime with a micro-plane making the finest zest possible and added it to the dressing.
Hope that helps for those of us who try to cut out as much fat as possible!
This was good, I used it as a base for the spinach strawberry salad I was dreaming of. To jazz up the dressing, I used lemon juice with just a splash of lime juice, and added 1 Tbsp of sugar. Then I topped the salad with candied pecans instead(recipe from this site). Delicious!
I used fresh ginger (3 times as much as ground)and it turned out wonderful.
