With spinach  as the base of the salad, you will get your daily intake of iron, which is important to the function of red blood cells which help in transporting oxygen around the body.

Spinach is also a good source of vitamins K, A, B2 and C, as well as a good source of folic acid, manganese, magnesium and iron. The vegetables, cheese, seasoned chicken and buffalo sauce also add a lot of flavor to this salad. I chose my favorite vegetables to add, but you can change this salad simply by changing the vegetables. Another change you can make is seasoning the chicken or changing the dressing.
