Recipe by Kimigo

Not being a big fan of pancakes, I ordered this salad at IHOP when I attended a family breakfast there. Not like any other spinach salad I have had, it is very "loud" and flavorful. It is important that you use the dressing called for, as others have not complimented the salad. This is hearty enough for a dinner salad, and so good there are never leftovers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry the bacon to chewy-cooked, then cut into chunks.
  2. Drain pan of all but 1 tablespoon of drippings, leaving bits in pan.
  3. Pan-fry the chicken in drippings, 4 minutes on each side. Slice.
  4. Let chicken cool to room temperature while you assemble the other items.
  5. In large bowl, toss the spinach, bleu cheese (to taste), bacon, and onion.
  6. Add dressing, lightly tossing and coating the salad.
  7. Divide between two dinner plates.
  8. Top with chicken (1/2 breast each), then croutons.
  9. note: Feta cheese may be substituted for the bleu, but it changes the character of the salad.
