Very tasty salad. Dressing was a little sweet for my tastes, so next time I'll use less sugar. Used olive oil instead of canola and will use a little more than the dressing recipe calls for next. Otherwise a nice quick meal with good flavor. Will definitely go into my recipe rotation.
Chicken, Spinach, and Blueberry Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette
Sweet blueberries pair well with distinctive blue cheese in this chicken salad, while a bold-flavored vinaigrette lightly coats the tender baby spinach leaves.
