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!

Notes

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.
