Simple Spinach Salad with Creamy Orange Dressing
This quick spinach salad is a tasty and light lunch or early supper. The creamy orange-flavored dressing is made with yogurt instead of the fuller fat options. I like to use the breast of a cooked rotisserie chicken. It's even better when the chicken is slightly warm!

If you need to cook the chicken breasts separately, you can roast them in the oven.

  1. Rinse & pat the chicken breast dry.
  2. Season with salt & pepper.
  3. Lightly grease a glass or oven safe dish with a little olive oil.
  4. Drizzle a little of the olive oil on top of the chicken.
