Chicken, Nectarine and Avocado Salad

This salad is really summery and comes together very quickly. Using granola adds crunch and makes it different. I've tried using a various types of granola, and our favorites have been those that aren't overly sweet but have lots of nuts. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces fresh baby spinach (about 8 cups)

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine spinach, nectarines, chicken and feta. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Top with avocado and granola. Serve immediately.
*I generally use this with leftover rotisserie chicken, but I also sometimes grill up a bunch of chicken just to use for things like this salad. Either one is great!

    This salad is fresh, tasty and easy to make! I never thought about combining nectarines and avocados, but the flavors work well, especially with the poppy seed dressing. Vary the flavor by varying the granola on top. Sliced almonds add a nice crunch, too.
