  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped dried dates
  • 12 pitted green olives, cut into halves
  • 1/4 cup thawed frozen orange
  • juice concentrate

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground
  • black pepper, to taste

Place spinach, oranges, dates, and olives in a large salad bowl; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together juice concentrate, vinegar, and mustard; set aside. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, sauté chicken in oil about 2 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 2 minutes more. Stir in juice concentrate mixture and cook about 3 minutes.
