Crunchy almonds! Juicy grapes! Creamy avocado! An herby dressing. These are just a few of my favorite things about this spinach power salad.

Yes, power salad. Because I’m super cool like that. Ummm, not really. I’m just about the least trendy person around.

But a power salad? I mean, yes please. It’s just so fun to say. And it keeps you nice and full … thereby helping you power through whatever it is you need to get done. 

SO! Let’s focus our attention on today’s salad at hand.

We have a spinach base that is loaded up with fruit, nuts, hard-boiled eggs and a little bit of sautéed chicken.

It’s finished off with a simple yogurt dressing that is jazzed up with a good amount of fresh herbs and a smidge of honey.

All combining into one colorful, hearty and texture-packed meal.

It’s healthy, it’s simple AND you can have it on the table in just under 25 minutes.

Tips & Tricks For This Spinach Power Salad

  1. For my vegetarian friends. You can absolutely omit the chicken and instead top the salad with another protein of choice. I have been itching to try this topped with crispy tofu but alas, I keep forgetting.
  2. I always make the hard-boiled eggs for this salad in advance. If you are making them the night of, it will add a bit more time to the recipe (but not a ton).
  3. Feel free to play around with the herbs in the yogurt dressing. While I am completely partial to the ones listed below, I think any number of different combinations could be delicious here.
  4. And finally, I didn’t give an amount for the spinach base since I feel like salads can be very personal / to taste. So use however much you would like. Or even feel free to use another salad green of choice.  Whatever floats your boat.
