This is a great salad! It's easy to make, fast and very filling. I substituted mushrooms for the broccoli (Mom loves mushrooms and I hate raw broccoli in salads) and added 1/2 cup of almonds to the second batch. Turned out real well.

I think the ranch dressing just doesn't go with this salad. It's far too heavy. Use a balsamic vinegar dressing or a dressing made with olive oil, light rice vinegar or regular rice vinegar, a small amount of sugar or Splenda, a quick dash of salt and pepper. This will allow the flavors of the actual salad to come through.

I love this type of salad. For tose who don't like raw broccoli, just blanche it in a couple cups of steaming water for about 15 seconds until it changes to a bright green color. Much tastier!

Easy and delicious, plus it was a great way to use up leftover grilled chicken! I subbed cherry tomatoes for the broccoli and added a couple of hard boiled eggs. I also used real bacon vs. bacon bits. This was great with warm rolls for a weeknight meal.

This was sooooo good it quickly found it's way into the recipe boxes of other family members. I didn't have broccoli so added fresh mushrooms instead, which made the broccoli-hating grand-daughter that was eating with us happy. This will be eaten alot in our household.

Very quick and easy to make. I was looking for something on the lighter side so I didn't bother with the ranch, or the chicken really. I used balsamic vinegar. It turned out great and I will make it again!

I didn't measure anything and it turned out great. I will make it again.

My family thought this Spinach Salad was one of the best they had tasted. I left the chicken out as I used it as a side dish with chicken on the grill.
