Skinny Greek-Style Chicken Spinach Salad

I love a big salad for dinner! Not only is this salad colorful and packed with flavor, but it’s also loaded with very healthy ingredients. First off spinach is a real superfood! In addition, a variety of chopped veggies and lean chicken are all tossed with a bottled light dressing. I added a few ingredients to the dressing to create a more Greek-style dressing. Each skinny main course salad has 259 calories and 8 grams of fat.  This recipe serves 2 but can easily be doubled, tripled, and so on.
