Chicken Salad With Berries and Balsamic Vinaigrette

A Summer-Ready, Berry-Loaded Chicken Salad

The following post was written by Whitney Davis, who blogs at The Healthy Vita and is part of POPSUGAR Select Food.

Along with the heat, Summer brings delicious produce. My go-to salad during this time of year is one full of fresh berries and veggies. This salad is delicious because it has goat cheese, walnuts, fresh berries, and a refreshing balsamic-agave vinaigrette. I also find that it's so easy to pull together for BBQs and picnics, and it is a perfect workday lunch. 

Berry Chicken Salad With Balsamic Agave Vinaigrette

Serves 2

Ingredients
For the salad:
3 cups fresh Spring mix (I used Organic Girl)
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup raspberries
1 pound cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast (I grilled mine in a panini press)
1/4 cup chopped walnut halves
2 tablespoons goat cheese

For the vinaigrette:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons agave
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Add the Spring mix to the plates. Layer the berries, chicken, walnuts, and goat cheese on top.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk the balsamic vinegar, agave, and Dijon mustard together. Drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons of dressing on top of each salad.
