Ingredients:

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts cut into strips
2 cups spinach, shredded
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 cup fresh broccoli, chopped
cup red onion, cut into rings
1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
cup pecans, diced
cup raisins
1 tsp. lemon juice
cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
Cilantro (optional)

To Make:

In a small skillet, combine the olive oil and the cubed chicken. The chicken can be bought already cut into strips or you can buy whole chicken breasts and cut them up to the desired size yourself.

Cook the chicken on medium heat until nice and browned. Remove the pan from the heat and place the chicken pieces on a paper towel to absorb up any excess oil. Next, chop up the spinach.

Use your hands instead of a knife to chop it up to avoid bruising the spinach leaves. In a small mixing bowl, place the spinach leaves and the lemon juice. Toss lightly. On 4 large serving plates, arrange the spinach leaves. Now that the chicken has had time to cool, cut up the chicken.

Top the spinach with the chicken pieces. Add the red onion and the broccoli. Lightly drizzle each salad with red wine vinegar.

Add salt and black pepper to taste. Top each salad with raisins, pecans, and strawberries.

Garnish each salad with cilantro, if desired.

Serve immediately.
