Spinach Salad with Chicken, Melon, and Mango

Thanks to an ample amount of spinach, this is a big, satisfying salad. Though the spinach is less prone to wilting than lettuce, it's best to store the dressing and salad separately and toss together shortly before eating.


4 servings (serving size: about 3 cups salad and about 3 tablespoons dressing)
