Strawberry, Mandarin Orange & Avocado Mixed Green Salad

Print
Over the weekend, we were out of town spending time with my brother for a belated birthday outing. He's been taking great strides in improving his health lately and has been eating more salads. While out for dinner at a restaurant last night, he ordered a strawberry spinach salad which looked so refreshing. I've been craving it since last night, so I decided to add it to our dinner menu for tonight. This salad was inspired by Baker's Square and their Strawberry Spinach Salad:

Here’s a sunny summer twist to the traditional spinach salad. Strawberries, avocado, and feta cheese crumbles plus pecan pieces and slices of chicken breast all on top of a bed of spinach. Served with poppy seed dressing. -- Baker's Square
