Strawberry Spinach Salad with Chicken

Strawberry Spinach Salad

This is one of our favorite salad recipes. Loaded with baby spinach, chicken, walnuts, crumbled feta, and fresh red-ripe strawberries - all of which are then tossed in a slightly sweet champagne vinaigrette. There are just so many things to love! It's full of color and sweetness. The walnuts add a nice crunchy texture. Plus, it only takes a few (or so!) minutes to put together and have on the dinner table.

Try pairing it with Essential Baking Company's Take and Bake Bread for a simple weeknight dinner, take along to your next picnic, or enjoy it as a light and delicious lunch during the week.

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Chicken

What you need



  • 2 tbsp. champagne vinegar
  • 6 tbsp. olive oil (don't use extra virgin for this dressing!)
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. shallots, finely minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
    Note: This makes approximately a 1/2 cup of dressing. If you don't need all of it, store in an airtight container to use later.



Slice strawberries lengthwise and place them in a large bowl. Coarsely chop chicken slices, and place them in the bowl with strawberries. Add feta, spinach, and walnuts. Set aside.

Measure vinegar into a small bowl. Add sugar, and whisk until sugar is dissolved. While whisking, add the olive oil slowly. Keep whisking until oil is completely incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste, and whisk until combined. 

Pour vinaigrette over salad, and toss to combine. Serve and enjoy!
