Fruity Spinach Salad
The amount of spinach and other ingredients will depend on the amount of people you are serving. You can figure about 1/2 of a chicken breast per person. The other ingredients should each equal about half the amount of chicken you are using. Toss everything together in a large bowl and add Parsley Dressing. Use less dressing than you think you will need and lightly toss. Add more dressing as necessary. Serve immediately.
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 heaping teaspoon black pepper
2 cups sunflower oil (or any light oil of your choice)
1 bunch of Italian flat leaf parsley, stems removed
Place all ingredients in blender and mix thoroughly. Serve on salad and store any remaining dressing in the refrigerator.
