Spinach Mandarin Salad with Chicken and Walnuts

I was looking for some new recipes, and came across a simple spinach salad with mandarin orange wedges which looks just divine. I wanted more on an entree salad than a side salad, so I browsed through my refrigerator and pantry and came up with this - a salad exploding with flavor and color - a treat to the palate and the eyes.

3 C. baby spinach (free after coupon)
8.5 oz. can mandarin oranges (free after coupons)
3 T. chopped pecans ($.35)
1/2 C. thin sliced chicken breast ($.40)
1/4 red bell pepper, julienned (free after coupon)
1/4 C. shredded munster cheese ($.30)

Toss all ingredients together. Serve with your favorite dressing.
Yields - 1 entree sized salad or 2 side salads
Cost: $1.05
