Chicken, Strawberry, Avocado And Spinach Salad

Chicken, Strawberry, Avocado And Spinach Salad

This salad is ready for summer and a great use of grilled chicken. The chicken is coated in zesty lemon juice, then rubbed with tasty spices. If you have a backyard garden or made a trip to the farmer’s market, then you may have a bounty of fresh strawberries to use for this salad. Slice them up and toss them in!

Many salads use a mayonnaise-based dressing, but this salad uses avocado oil and extra virgin olive oil to create a creamy and satisfying alternative. If you have allergies to the eggs in mayo, use avocado oil and/or an extra virgin olive oil-based dressing as a substitute. The balsamic vinegar and fresh herbs give this salad a fresh taste, and the strawberries bring a sweet, bold flavor.

The chicken provides enough protein to eat this salad as a meal, and you won’t need to eat this as a side. Pair this salad with a starchy vegetable, or eat as a tasty lunch!
