Ingredients

For the Salad:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 lbs)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 cups baby greens salad mix
  • 2 cups sliced cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 8 strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh basil

For the Dressing:

  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 23 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, or more to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 6 oz fresh strawberries, hulled

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill over medium-high heat, turning once, until cooked through. This will take about 5 minutes per side. Remove from grill and set aside.
  3. While chicken is cooking, make the vinaigrette. Add olive oil, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, and prepped strawberries to blender. Blend on high until well combined, about 1 minute. Taste mixture and add more balsamic vinegar if desired.
  4. Place 2 cups salad mix on each serving plate. Slice chicken into strips and place atop greens. Place 1/2 cup tomatoes on each plate along with 2 sliced strawberries. Add 1/4 cup feta cheese to each and sprinkle with chopped basil.
  5. Serve with vinaigrette on the side.
