With my fiance training to join the military and my desire to get back into shape, I have begun searching for recipes that will help keep us on track and still taste yummy.

This didn't fail to please! According to him I am allowed to keep this one near the front of the recipe box!

This recipe made enough that I was able to send him to work this morning with a healthy lunch! YAY!

Original recipe from a Better Homes and Gardens specialty magazine.

How to Make Superfood Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare vinaigrette by combining all ingredients for it in a mason jar or other container that can be sealed. Shake well and put in the fridge until ready to serve.
  2. Cook chicken and slice into 1 1/2 inch strips or bites. It was too cold to use the outdoor grill, so I just baked them with a drizzle of olive oil.

    Rinse spinach and fruit and pat dry.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together spinach, strawberries, blueberries, walnuts and cheese.

    Plate and top with 1/2 one of the cooked chicken breasts, a sprinkle of black pepper and drizzle with vinaigrette. Serve 1/4 of the avocado on side of plate (if desired)

    There is enough to serve as a whole meal for 2-4 or a side salad for 5-8.
  4. Note: I didn't have any fresh fruit, so I raided my freezer of what I stocked this past season.
    When I made this I used thawed strawberries and blueberries and it was great. I just recommend letting them thaw to room temperature if you do use frozen fruit.
