1/8 Cup thinly sliced red onion (you can add more or less to taste)
*Did you know that you can remove some of the onion’s sharp flavor by soaking in cold water for a few minutes? If you like the flavor but don’t want the sharpness, give it a try. Drain and pat dry before adding to the salad
2 tsp crumbled Blue Cheese (optional)
*(Don’t like Blue cheese, try Monterey Jack Cheese or sharp white cheddar)
1 piece turkey bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled (optional)
1/2 Cup grilled chicken breast without skin, sliced
¼ avocado, chopped
Salad Dressing :
Serving Size is 2 Tablespoons
Juice of one lemon, or about ¼ Cup. (I prefer to use Meyer lemons if I can find them)
The same amount of Red Wine Vinegar, or about ¼ Cup.
Match the liquid amount of the lemon juice and vinegar with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, about ½ Cup.
1-2 cloves Fresh Garlic, crushed and minced
1 Tablespoon Fresh Chives, chopped finely
1 Tablespoon Fresh Dill, chopped finely.
1 Tsp Sea Salt
½ Teaspoon onion powder
Add spinach, chicken, blueberries, bacon, and red onions to bowl and toss with 2 Tbsp. salad dressing. Top with crumbled Blue Cheese and avocado.
You can swap the blueberries for strawberries for a change.
