Back to school time is tough not only for me but for my kids. They both start feeling a bit anxious before school starts. Thought they have been through this many times now it always surprises us when they start to get moody and acting out a bit two – four weeks before school starts. We try to do a few extra special things during this time to take their mind off returning to school.
Looking for a simple dish that you can almost feel good about serving? This salad was delicious and I loved that it had spinach and simple grilled or baked chicken (use whatever you have as leftovers or a rotisserie chicken) to make it. If you cook your chicken ahead of time or use leftovers this dish is ready in no time!
Simple, hearty, and flavorful this salad ticked off all the boxes for a great back to school meal. When you are getting used to new schedules and homework again dinners need to be easy and something everyone will want to eat. This is the perfect meal.
I served this as is for a meal. If you wish you could add another green side or stir in a few fresh green beans diced into 1/3 rds to add a bit more crunch and an extra boost of vitamins!
