This salad is amazing delicious.  Let’s just start there.  You need to make this soon.  Like this afternoon or tonight or for breakfast tomorrow.  You’ll be smiling with every bite.  Flavors.  Fresh spinach, bright crispy apples, crunchy almonds, chicken (for us carnivores), and tangy feta.  Yummm.  With 3 m’s.  That salad will leave you satisfied, and delightfully full.  If could eat another one right now I would.  Get you some!

Spinach, Apple & Chicken Salad

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 1 to 2
Author Julie Espy {White Lights on Wednesday}


  • 3 to 4 cups cups raw spinach leaves
  • 1 large gala apple
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Tuscan Italian Dressing store bought or homemade - I used KRAFT


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cut chicken in half (like your butterflying it), so that you have two thin breasts. Place chicken in the hot skillet, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until browned. Turn chicken over, and cook another 3 to 4 minutes, until cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and cool until your can easily handle the chicken. Thinly slice the chicken breast halves.
  2. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add almonds. Toast almonds, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to a bowl.
  3. Thoroughly rinse spinach to remove any dirt. Chop spinach into bite-sized pieces. Dry spinach with a paper towel.
  4. Place spinach, chicken, almonds, and feta in a large bowl. Drizzle with salad dressing. Toss to combine. Serve immediately.
