Camille has spent the last week at Fitness Ridge. It is a place that helps you get your fitness goals and helps you lose weight and feel good about yourself.

I went there for just a day they they showed me that healthy food doesn’t have to taste bad. This Pina Colada Chicken Salad is full of delicious flavor and will fill you up.

If you are looking for a quick, simple, and delicious dinner idea, this is definitely one you need to try.

I also like making this ahead of time, and eating it for lunch throughout the week.

It is a light meal, but surprisingly very filling. It only takes a few minutes to throw together, and I promise, you are going to love this recipe.

what could I serve this over, instead of spinach?

In the recipe, we serve this over spinach, because it is like a salad. However, if you are not a huge spinach fan, there are a few simple replacements that you will love just as much. Here is what we recommend:

-Romain Lettuce
-Spring Salad Mix
-Butter Leaf Lettuce
-Rice
-Quinoa
-Brocoli or Vegetable Mix
-Plain

You don’t have to serve it over anything, if you don’t want to. You could just eat it, as is. We recommend eating it as a salad, but you could easily use any of the replacements, listed above.

    Hi .. . Just wondering what brand (type) coconut milk you use to make the salad dressing. I made this dressing and it was like water. Really like the flavor but would like the dressing thicker. Do you use coconut milk, coconut cream or cream of coconut? Thanks
