A fabulous salad and very quick and easy if you use a rotisserie chicken! We actually tossed this in one bowl and then served. Beautiful presentation and a perfect 10 on flavor!

A great, simple salad with fantastic taste! The dressing for it is out of this world! I used leftover rotisserie chicken, 2 garlic cloves and half of a shallot because the one I had was very big. Did I mention the dressing is so, so good? ;) It was a perfect compliment to the chicken, spinach and avocado. Thanks for sharing this wonderful salad recipe, Bev!
