Fruity Spinach Salad

Baby spinach
chopped celery
chopped green onion
dried cranberries or raisins
sliced fresh strawberries
fresh mango diced
crumbled feta cheese
iced nuts (optional)
Roasted chicken breast, diced

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.

2 teaspoons salt

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.
