About this recipe: This is a fantastic summer salad, which is packed full of flavour. Chicken is tossed with spinach, strawberries, goats cheese and pecans in a balsamic salad dressing.
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)
