STRAWBERRY CHICKEN SALAD

WITH AVOCADO AND HONEY-BALSAMIC DRESSING


summer salad

 I love a good salad, in fact, I could probably eat one every day but my husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy so I’m constantly making an effort to spruce things up a bit when it comes to having “just a salad” for dinner.

In my opinion, the more toppings the merrier because nobody likes a bland salad.  I usually tend to lean on the saltier side but there is something magical that happens when you combine the flavors of balsamic and strawberry.  When I first made this for my husband he sort of turned his nose up at it and gave me that I don’t know about that look but I coaxed him into trying it and soon after his plate was bare and all I heard was mmmm noises.  

Trust me when I say that this strawberry chicken salad recipe will become a go-to summer favorite and a tangy delight to the taste buds.  Aso, if you liked the dishware and other items I used in the photos, I’ve listed them for you below.

Ingredients
  1. 2-4 BAKED BONELESS CHICKEN BREASTS (SLICED)
  2. 4-6 CUPS SPINACH (LOOSLEY PACKED)
  3. 4-6 STRAWBERRIES (SLICED IN HALF)
  4. 1 AVOCADO (SLICED)
  5. 2-4 RINGS OF RED ONION (DICED OR JULIENNED)
  6. BLUE CHEESE CRUMBLES
  7. 2 TBSP CHOPPED WALNUTS
  8. 2 TBSP OLIVE OIL
  9. SALT + PEPPER
Instructions
  1. DRIZZLE OLIVE OIL, SALT AND PEPPER THE CHICKEN TO YOUR LIKING AND BAKE AT 350 IN OVEN FOR 25-30 MINUTES. DRESS PLATES OR BOWLS WITH SPINACH. TOP WITH ONION, AVOCADO, STRAWBERRIES, BLUE CHEESE CRUMBLES, AND WALNUTS. ONCE CHICKEN IS DONE, ADD TO SALAD AND TOP WITH HONEY-BALSAMIC DRESSING. HONEY-BALSAMIC DRESSING RECIPE IS LISTED BELOW. ADD AN EXTRA BIT OF CRACKED FRESH PEPPER IF YOU LIKE.
Notes
  1. I USUALLY BAKE 2 CHICKEN BREASTS IF I'M MAKING IT FOR 2 BUT IF YOU PLAN ON MAKING A LARGER MEAL OUT OF IT, USE THE LARGER SUGGESTED MEASUREMENT QUANTITIES AND DICE YOUR CHICKEN A LITTLE MORE. ALSO I LIKE TO EYEBALL HOW MUCH BLUE CHEESE, WALNUTS, STRAWBERRIES, AND ONION I NEED. MY TRICK IS TO DRESS THE PLATE FIRST WITH SPINACH THEN I DRESS IT WITH ALL THE "FIXINGS" AND THEN TOP WITH THE DRESSING.
