Tweak a Week #1 - Grilled Chicken and Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Goat Cheese


  • 3 tbsp golden balsamic vinegar

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tbsp chopped shallots

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1 teaspoon water

  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

  • fresh black pepper, to taste


  • 16 oz boneless skinless chicken breast

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt, to taste (I used Montreal Steak Grill Mates)

For the Salad:

  • 6 cups baby spinach

  • 3 cups sliced strawberries

  • 2 ounces soft goat cheese

To Make:
  1. In a small bowl whisk together the dressing ingredients.

  2. For the chicken: Season chicken with seasoned salt, then mix in crushed garlic.

  3. Light the grill or indoor grill pan on medium heat, when hot spray the grates with oil and grill the chicken about 10 to 11 minutes on each side until charred on the outside and cooked through in the center. Set aside on a cutting board and slice on an angle.

  4. In a large bowl toss the spinach with the dressing. Divide between 4 plates and top with strawberries, goat cheese and grilled chicken.
