Summer Spinach Salad

This is my all time favorite salad, and a staple of my sister's.  So even though I can't take credit for it, I though every one of you should have it.  We all crave a good old fashioned salad every once in awhile, so here is the spiced up version!  Enjoy!

Spinach and Fruit Summer Salad 
(serves about 4)
10 oz bag of fresh spinach
1-2 chicken breasts, grilled and thinly sliced
1 pint of strawberries, sliced
1 pint of blueberries
4-5 kiwis, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 oz crumbled feta cheese** (or crumble some yourself)
**substitute for another cheese if desired

2/3 cup oil (I use extra virgin olive oil...use what you like)
4 Tbs. Balsamic Vinegar
6 Tbs. Strawberry Jam  (or any berry variety)
1 1/2 Tbs. poppyseeds
1/4 tsp salt

Mix all the ingredients minus the chicken.  With the dressing whisk everything together in a bowl and then pour of the salad and toss, and then lay your chicken on top, sliced up to make it pretty!  :)
