Pampered Chef: Looking for Salad Recipe w/ Spinach, Avocado...

    Today when out shopping a sales clerk saw me with my tote and sweatshirt and told me she loved PC -- of course! :) She then told me about a recipe she had at a party and has since misplaced it and then went on to describe it to me. Some of the ingredients were:

    Spinach
    Avocado
    Grapefruit
    Walnuts
    Lemon Juice

    The only recipe I could come up with is the Chicken, Avocado & Grapefruit Salad, which she didn't think it was, do any of you know any other recipes with these ingredients?

    She doesn't have the consultants name from the party, which was a few years ago, so I offered to look for the recipe for her. Can anyone help?

    Thank you!

    You can go to recipe search on consultant's corner and type in key ingredients (i think), that might trigger something..

    Chicken
    1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 tbsp Citrus & Basil Rub
    1 tsp olive oil

    For salad, slice radishes using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with thin slicing blade. Peel and dice avocado using Avocado Peeler. Slice chicken crosswise into thin strips using Utility Knife. Place spinach into Simple Additions® Dots Large Round Bowl. Top with sliced chicken, grapefruit, radishes, avocado and onion, if desired. Pour dressing over salad; toss gently.

    Thank you everyone for the help. I spoke with the woman tonight and read her the recipe for Chicken, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad and she remembered the Sweet Caramel Cashews, as the consultant told a story about burning the cashews while taking a phone call. Funny how something will jog our memories. Will drop off a few copies of the recipe and catalogs for her and her daughter tomorrow - hoping that daughter will book a show as she has the cookware and she must need some more pieces, right? ;)
