Ingredients

FOR THE SALAD, TOSS:

FOR THE VINAIGRETTE, WHISK:

FOR THE CHICKEN, SAUTÉ:

Punch up the health factor of this salad by turning to dark leafy greens like spinach or arugula — they're loaded with vitamin K and calcium, among other good-for-you nutrients.

Instructions

For the salad, toss mushrooms, spinach, shallots, parsley, and mint in a bowl.

For the vinaigrette, whisk together oil, zest, lemon juice, pepper, and Dijon in a bowl; season with salt.

For the chicken, cook bacon in a sauté pan until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate, then toss with salad. Reserve drippings in pan.

Sauté chicken in drippings over medium-high heat, 8–10 minutes per side. Let chicken rest 2 minutes, then thinly slice.

Serve salad with chicken and top with vinaigrette.

Mushrooms only require a quick wipe with a damp cloth to clean before preparing or eating.
