Monday night spinach salad

After a weekend of eating snacks, treats, pub food and beer I am craving a healthy and light dinner tonight. On nights like this I like to throw some chicken on the BBQ and make a fresh, tasty spinach salad. Here’s what I put in mine:

Ingredients

  • ¼ medium sized red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 2 bunches baby organic spinach, rinsed
  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 cup almond slices, toasted
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 large chicken breast, grilled and cut
  • Blue cheese salad dressing

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, toss together all ingredients. Pour dressing over salad, toss and serve.
  2. For a different flavour combination, replace the almonds and blue cheese with pecans and goat cheese.
  3. Pairs nicely with a crisp white wine. I like Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio (see my review here)

Does anyone else have a go-to healthy meal they’d like to share? If so leave your recipe in the comments!

  1. I’m so happy spring is around the corner so I can start enjoying fresh berries and making salads with them as well. Looks like a perfect and light dinner!
