- 1/2 cup strawberries hulled and quartered
- 2/3 cup grilled or baked chicken breast cut into strips
- 1 small tomato cut into chunks

- 2 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
Toss lettuce, strawberries, chicken, tomatoes, feta cheese, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Drizzle salad dressing over top and serve immediately.
Grill chicken breasts over medium heat for this recipe for an added touch of bbq char! Place breasts on a grill and cook for 10 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat, cut into thin strips and add to the top of the salad.
Turn the dressing into a sweet strawberry balsamic vinaigrette by adding 1 tablespoon of strawberry preserves to your balsamic dressing.
Replace feta cheese with goat cheese or blue cheese for a different flavor.
This salad is gluten free, but if you're using store bought dressing check the label to ensure it does not contain wheat.
This recipe makes a single salad meant for one person to enjoy, but feel free to double or quadruple the recipe to serve at a meal. Mix the ingredients together in a large bowl and hold off on the dressing until serving time.
A few tablespoons of chopped red onion would taste amazing.
Add a sliced avocado to the top of this salad!
Any green leafy lettuce is great in this salad. Romaine, iceburg and butter are the best options
