Honey Mustard Spinach Salad with Chicken

At least once a week I make some kind of dinner salad. My family loves fresh spinach so I try to use it often since it is so good for them! I threw this one together tonight, using things I already had on hand and it was a big hit!

1 bag of fresh spinach
8-10 baby carrots (sliced lengthwise and thin)
1/2 seedless cucumber, sliced
6-10 grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 red onion, sliced
4 slices of bacon
2 chicken breasts, sliced thin making 4 pieces
8 T Honey Mustard (I used Ken's Light)

Place spinach in a large bowl, top with carrots, cucumber, tomatoes & onion. Cook bacon, then drain on a paper towel and drain the grease from the pan but don't wipe it clean. Season chicken breasts with your favorite spices (I used salt, pepper and garlic powder). Using the same pan you cooked the bacon, cook chicken on each side for 3-4 minutes, until cooked through. The bits of bacon with help to flavor the chicken. Once the chicken is done, allow to cool then slice diagonally and place on top of the salad. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of honey mustard on top. Serve warm or cold.

The Veggies...
The Bacon...
The finished product...YUM!
This is a picture of my husband's salad, he wanted some hard boiled eggs on his!

Weight Watcher Friends: This recipe makes 4 large salads. If each has one 3oz chicken breast, 1 slice of bacon and 2 T honey mustard then each serving would be 6 points. If you use a different dressing you will have to adjust the points the Ken's dressing that I used has 2 points per serving.
I usually make my own dressings because I don't like to eat ingredients that I can't say, but this is one that is pretty good and I know what each ingredient is :)


  1. Just saw this posted on Facebook. I love big salads for lunch and dinner. This combination looks delicious!

  2. The information is very correct. Thank you.
