  • Put spinach into a large salad bowl; top with pine nuts, tomatoes, chicken, avocado, corn kernels, and goat cheese.

  • Beat white wine vinegar, olive oil, and Dijon mustard together in a small bowl until smooth; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle dressing over the salad and toss lightly to coat.

Cook's Notes:

Feta cheese can be used in place of goat cheese.

You can use fresh, canned, or frozen corn kernels.

Depending on your personal tastes, you may find you prefer less than the full amount of dressing on your salad. Add a little at a time until you're happy with it.

I just made this salad for supper tonight for my husband and I. If your planning on trying this recipe I suggest making it right and following the recipe that includes making the dressing. There isn't a thing I would change to the recipe. It's a great recipe especially on a hot evening when you don't want to heat up your house more. Read More

I didn't make the dressing because I'm in love with a white vinaigrette by Private Selection (Kroger). I did toast the pine nuts (1st time) and was surprised to find that they taste like bacon. Great salad very filling. Keep in mind I did 1/4 everything since I didn't need a big salad. Read More

First I should say that I did not make the dressing just the salad. It was great and one that I look forward to making again. I will add some red or green onion next time because I like a little onion in my salad. I drizzled this with a Champagne Vinaigrette that I had on hand. Yum! Read More
