A Recipe: Power Salad

Since the weather is going to be 70+ degrees all week, I thought I'd post this yummy salad.  Check out Meals For Real (my other blog) for more ideas.
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
3 or 4 boiled eggs
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 you'll need:

Boil 3 or 4 eggs until done.
Grill chicken.
Mix all ingredients together.

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.
Hope you enjoy!
*****(5 Stars)--This dish was fantastic! It will definitely become a part of our regular rotation and we will definitely have it over and over again!


  1. This looks and sounds delish! I think I'll have to make it as well - with a few modifications, of course :)
