READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Leggy Peggy

We love salads and are always looking for new ways to combine interesting ingredients. People have very personal preferences for dressings, so you can use the one noted here, or any dressing you prefer. Created for RSC #11.

I've been waiting to this Hidden Gem from RSC#11 to be reviewed. I've had this salad and variations of it four times now. First as written (couldn't taste the brandy but that didn't bother me), second with a soft boiled egg per serving, third with cottage cheese and I can't remember what I did to the last one. Love the combination of spinach and cos. Simple, tasty, filling and it's easy to have the ingredients on hand. I quite often buy the whole smoked chicken breast to have it available for making easy lunches. They keep a lot better than cut meat from the deli counter.
