    Chicken and Strawberry Spinach Salad Created by MsBindy

    I stumbled upon this recipe tonight as I looked through the slim selections in my fridge. I really hit the jackpot with this recipe. Today was our first hot day of the year, and this salad was perfect. I used the honey poppyseed dressing from recipe 213485 and together the salad and dressing were bliss. I didn't have a nectarine, so had to skip that and had to sub slivered almonds for the pecans. I really liked the cinnamon almonds. They added so much to this salad. I never would have thought to use the cinnamon. Thanks for such a great dinner tonight.

    This was great! My DH (who won't eat fruit in any dish) liked it, just wanted a few less strawberries next time. I did a spinach/lettuce mix, added 2 C broccoli and didn't use the nectariness. Also added 2 green onions. It's great to have more spinach salad recipes, now that my CSA box comes with spinach every week.

    I saw the photo of this and had to make it. It is fantastic. When I sauted the pecans I added a few tsp of sugar to carmelize a little. I did not have any nectarines so I substituted a chopped navel orange and it was very good but next time I want to try with the nectarine. This is a very refreshing salad especially for the hot weather months. Thanks for the recipe.
