POWER SALAD

Power Salad Adapted from JJ Twigs
1 bunch/bag of spinach
1 can of black olives, drained
1 can of mandarin oranges, drained
1 container feta cheese
Handful of raisins
Handful of sunflower seeds
Some red onion
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions:  I seasoned the chicken breasts and put them on the grill until finished.  I combined all other ingredients.  Once chicken was done, I sliced it up and added it to the salad.

Modifications:
-I left off the bacon bits.
-I added grilled chicken (an extra cost at the restaurant)

Here’s what I started with:
Season the chicken with salt and pepper or your favorite poultry seasoning and grill until chicken juices run clear.  Build your salad with the other ingredients.  Slice the chicken and place on top of salad. Serve with your favorite dressing.

Here’s what you’ll end up with:

A couple of week’s ago we went out to this local restaurant and I ordered their Power Salad and it was SO good.  The ingredients were so easy that I decided to make it at home.  They serve it with a sweet dressing much like this one but, personally, I found that the mandarin oranges added just enough juice to the salad for me.
This is a very healthy, delicious salad and we will be having it all summer long.  Of course, you could add any fruits or vegetables to this salad that you may have on hand.
