Spinach Salad

IMG_4396 I told my friend, Nancy, that I would post my spinach salad recipe on my blog, so here goes…

The original recipe (that I have tweaked a little) from Southern Living magazine calls for pan-fried chicken in addition. It is very good with the chicken for a main dish, but if you are just looking for a delicious side salad, try this.

Mix the following together in a bowl:

1 6 oz. pkg. Baby Spinach

1 large apple, thinly sliced and chopped (I like Gala)

1/2 cup pecan or walnut pieces

1/2 cup dried cherries

1 8 oz. jar poppy seed dressing (I use Brianna’s or Marzetti’s All Natural found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket, usually near the produce).


You can play around with the proportions. I just eyeball it now and add to my liking. I gave you the amounts the original recipe suggested.

  1. Lisa, I will probably be duplicating this recipe for Core Group, this Sunday. The salad looks flavorful, like all the yummy things you make. I like the addition of the apple in the salad for crunch. Keep up all the great recipe posts.
