Orange, Chicken and Spinach Salad
I have been loving the citrus in my Brewer’s Organics Box.
It’s been grapefruits, oranges, mandarins, tangerines, lemons, limes and clementines. It’s all been delicious. But more often than not, I’m just having my citrus as a snack or a side to meal. It was time to come up with a fun way to incorporate it into a meal.
This salad not only contains orange slices but the salad dressing is made from orange too. The flavors are bright and this salad is full of nutrition. Can you say hello to Vitamin C? With spinach and oranges, you’ll get a big dose of vitamin C in this salad.
If you’re not a meat eater, then substitute the chicken with grilled tempeh.
3 Cups baby spinach
2 Chicken Breasts either grilled or oven baked. (or whatever way you like to cook it)
1 orange, peeled and separated into section. (If you want to get fancy, take the coating off)
1/3 cup pitted and chopped dates
1/2 avocado sliced
1/4 cup almonds rough chopped
1 orange, peeled
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp dried tarragon
salt and pepper to taste
For the salad: Grab a big bowl and put your salad ingredients together. You can choose to get artistic your presentation or just toss the ingredients into the bowl.
For the dressing: Place all the ingredients in a food processor. Blend the ingredients until smooth.
