PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 10 minutes
For the lemon vinaigrette:
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, grated
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Finley copped Italian parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste
For the salad:
1 small russet potato, scrubbed clean and sliced into 14" rounds
6 ounces baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
1/2 small white or sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 cup sliced rotisserie chicken (we used a pre-cooked, store-bought chicken)
4 ounces crumbled Feta cheese
Nonstick cooking spray
Make the vinaigrette: Combine all dressing ingredients in a lidded glass jar. Cover and shake vigorously until the vinaigrette begins to thicken. Set aside until ready to use.
Preheat your oven to 375 F. Cover a baking sheet liberally with cooking spray. Arrange potato slices in a single layer on the baking sheet. Spray the top of the potato slices with cooking spray and season lightly with salt. Bake until the potato slices become slightly browned on the outside and tender when pierced with a fork, about 6-7 minutes. Once cooked, remove potatoes from oven and let cool for a few minutes before handling.
Arrange spinach in two serving bowls, dividing equally amongst bowls. Add onions, chicken and cheese. Once the potatoes have cooled slightly, arrange on top of the salads. Drizzle salads with vinaigrette and serve immediately.
