Spinach and Chicken Pesto Salad + Giveaway

As a single mom, I want to ensure that my son eats healthy. Always being on the go with him in school and me working, it was hard. I had to make him sit there and eat his veggies and I hated it. However, it was best for him. Jaiden and I love salad, however, he’s not a huge fan of a few things and one of those is Spinach. Sadly, this momma doesn’t care too much and still makes him eat it. This is how I ended up with the flavorful Spinach and Chicken Pesto Salad!

Spinach and Chicken Pesto Salad is a simple healthy salad that everyone can enjoy. It's the perfect summer salad. Light and healthy!
Growing up, I was not a fruit and veggies kind of kid. They say that your taste buds change every 7 years and it surely does seem to be true. After I had Jaiden I knew I needed to start eating my fruits and veggies for his sake. To show him the importance of eating healthy. It wasn’t always easy and still isn’t but he doesn’t move until his veggies are eaten. The one thing I hated was buying fruits and veggies just for them to go bad. I felt like they didn’t last very long and that became frustrating as a single mom. I struggled paycheck to paycheck and the thought of wasting food was not something I was happy about!

The waste of fruits and vegetables is something that bothers me. Not only is it a waste of food and money, it’s a waste of time.

When you purchase fruit and veggies they come in these plastic containers that most of us put in the fridge and hope they don’t go bad in a few days. However, it seems to be that by the end of the week they have started growing fuzz. YUCK!

Keeping my fruits and veggies fresh longer is important to me. I don’t like to waste food and now I don’t have too. Eating healthy is something I love and it can be very disappointing when I really want some strawberries only to open the fridge to see they are spoiled. I can not tell you how excited I am about having Fresh Fruits and Veggies in my fridge. Having these Rubbermaid Fresh Works Produce Savers has left me impressed and excited.

Now that my fruits and veggies are lasting longer, I have time to make amazing salads like this Spinach and Chicken Pasto Salad! I can not tell you how excited I was when I opened my fridge and my produce was still good. I could actually make a salad and I could make it when I wanted to which was even better!

Jaiden and I love salad. We don’t like plain salad but we do love a salad that is full of flavor and yumminess. This Spinach and Chicken Pesto Salad is something my sister in law made a few years ago and I fell in love. I changed up a few things to make it more my own and to my liking and I couldn’t be happier. I was a bit sad I couldn’t eat it right away as I had to let the pasta cool off first. Well, I could have but it’s so good when it’s nice a cold. The fresh strawberry slices were the perfect touch to add a blast of flavor!

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had veggies and fruits to go bad in the frig. It’s either I forget about them or just don’t get to them in time. I love both veggies and fruits, but I’m usually the only one who eats them. These Rubber Maid containers are awesome! I never knew they existed so I will definitely have to check these out.

    This is a salad I would love to make! My other half and love eating pesto and we would enjoy this dish any day of the week. Since we usually make enough for leftovers, a good container, like the Rubbermaid ones you suggested would come in handy to continue to enjoy this dish another day (or later as a bedtime snack).

    Pesto is one of my all favorite things. We slather on sandwiches .. dip veggies it for snacks .. spoon it into soup. It’s also one of those things that you can literally put a little bit of everything into. can’t wait to try your version in this salad. It looks healthy and delish for spring!
