Grilled Chicken Salad with Strawberries and Spinach
Grilled Chicken Salad with Strawberries and Spinach is all I’ve been craving now that Spring is in full bloom! I made this with creamy goat cheese and a white balsamic dressing, but this would also be great with Feta cheese and if you want to add more protein, or skip the cheese altogether, add walnuts or slivered almonds.
I’m so excited to be teaming up with Whole Foods Market this month to share some of my favorite summer recipes using the best quality produce, meat and seafood for your summer grilling. Whole Foods Market has the best selection of high-quality organics, grown without toxic or persistent pesticides. Hurry and get to your local Whole Foods Market to get 3 1-lb packages of peak-season organic strawberries for just $10, sale ends 7/18/17.
I love strawberries in my salad, I could eat this all summer long, especially when strawberries are at their peak.
A few other salad recipes I have with strawberries you may also enjoy:

- Strawberry Cucumber Salad
- Strawberry Salad with Almond-Cranberry Crusted Goat Cheese
For those of you following a Paleo diet, swapping the cheese with almonds or walnuts would make this compliant.
