Greek Style Spinach Salad

I used to think that Greek salad must be really difficult to make.  You know, on account of its deliciousness.  Then I saw my mother-in-law make it and discovered that the dressing is actually really simple.  Who knew that it was just a balsamic vinaigrette that made for such a great salad?  Actually I imagine everyone knew that, but for some reason it took me awhile!

I’m pretty sure that my way of making Greek salad isn’t too authentic, and you probably can’t even call this a recipe, it’s so simple.  But when I found myself making up this same salad 4 days in a row for lunch, I decided I might as well post it.  Also, I know that you usually don’t put spinach and chicken in Greek salad, but it’s tasty and makes for a complete meal when put together this way.

Now I just need to go get more spinach so I can have this for lunch again!
