watermelon saladThis is one of my all time favorite summertime salads.  I discovered it in the 2005 issue of Shape Magazine a while back and have modified it slightly by adding grilled chicken for a yummy entree salad.  Enjoy!

1/2 cup red onion, cut into thin slices

(optional) 2 grilled chicken breasts, cut into cubes

DIRECTIONS:

2.  Add spinach; toss lightly to coat.
