Basil Scented Chicken Salad

A fabulous spring salad from Southern Living Easy Weeknight Favorites Cookbook!  I make this recipe when I have to bring a brunch dish to a spring event.  Serve with buttery croissants and some fresh grapes. 
It always gets rave reviews and is one of my favs!

½ cup Mayo                                          
2 tblsp lemon juice      
½ tsp. lemon-pepper seasoning                         
¼ tsp. hot sauce      
1 tblsp Dijon mustard                     
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
½ cup chopped celery
¼ cup shredded fresh basil                     
¼ cup chopped green onions
6 cups torn or shredded  spinach                                               
1 tblsp pine nuts or pecan pieces, toasted

Combine 1st 5 ingredients, stirring well.  Add chicken and next 3 ingredients, toss gently.  Place spinach on individual serving plates, top with chicken mixture.  Sprinkle with nuts.  Yield: 3 servings.
