Reviews for Honey-Mustard Chicken Spinach Salad
"This was really good, but I wish I could find smoked Swiss..."
"The only change I made to the original recipe was to mix some romaine lettuce with the baby spinach to give the salad a little extra crunch. Don't overlook the lemon peel as this really sets off a wonderful citrus note with this tasty blend of flavors. For those who might like even more protein, some chopped egg would be wonderful in this mix. By the way, the recipe makes for two huge servings. The refrigerated leftovers were still great the next day."
