    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette dressing
    • 1 bunch fresh spinach, rinsed and dried

    Method
    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Place the chicken breast meat into a frying pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinaigrette over medium heat; cook and stir until the chicken is browned, no longer pink in the centre and the juice has nearly evaporated, about 10 minutes. Remove the chicken to a bowl and let cool.
    2. Place the spinach into a salad bowl; scatter the strawberries, goat cheese and sugar coated pecans over the spinach. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinaigrette over the salad and top with the chicken. Serve slightly warm or chilled.

    Delicious. I love how strawberries and balsamic taste with goat cheese. I made some changes to this. I used used 1 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar instead of the balsamic vinaigrette. I also used a spring salad mix instead of spinach. I also found a box of sesame candied pecans at an asian grocery store that really made a good finish to this salad. I think for an added taste, sliced pears or apples would go well too.  -  17 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very nice mix of ingredients that were simple, straight forward and uncomplicated, but when mixed together, gave the salad a "wow" factor. Used grilled chicken and added blueberries that needed to be used and an extra tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. This is a very pretty salad and perfect for a warm summer's day. Thank you for the submission Missskittypoo.  -  12 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I really enjoyed this recipe, even though I had to make last minute changes. I live in a rural area, and don't have acess to some ingredients -ie: goat cheese, and candied pecans BUT.. I added a little red onion, a little red pepper, and toasted the plain baking pecans i had in the pantry. The strawberries, red onion, and balsamic vinagrette was YUMMY!!  -  23 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
