  • Mix mayo and dressing until blended.
  • Combine chicken, peppers and onions in large bowl. Add mayo mixture; mix lightly.
  • Spoon onto spinach-covered plate; top with cheese.

How to Clean Spinach

Spinach can hold a lot of dirt and must be thoroughly washed before using. To clean, fill a large bowl with water, then swish spinach around in water until most of the dirt comes off. Repeat process 2 or 3 times, using clean water each time, until no more dirt clings to the spinach. Rinse thoroughly under running water and remove hard stems. Spin dry in salad spinner and/or pat dry with paper towels. Use immediately or store in refrigerator up to 4 days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was good - not super outstanding, but certainly a good one. This recipe was good - not super outstanding, but certainly a good one. The dressing was good - it was hard to eat (especially for my kids) because spinach leaves (being the only leafy greens in this salad) are hard to pick up with a fork, as well as pepper pieces when also trying to get the chicken. I would probably make the dressing again, but use it on a mixture of spinach plus other greens.

I made a little more dressing (with the vinager & mayo) than called for. If you are looking for something new try it out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought this was a great salad. I thought this was a great salad. I doubled the balsamic vinegar/mayo mix, because I prefer things to be more moist. It was delicious. It's something I know my kids would like too.
