Chicken Strawberry Salad with Warm Citrus Dressing

The sweet strawberries and zesty dressing make this salad near impossible to pass up. Make it when fresh strawberries are available from local farms for the absolute best flavor.

Ingredients

  • Dressing:

    • ½ cup strawberries
    • ⅓ cup orange juice
    • 2 Tbsp. salad oil
    • 2 tsp. lemon zest
    • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
    • 1 tsp. sugar

    • ¼ tsp. pepper

    Salad:

    • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    • 2 cups strawberries
    • 6 cups spinach
    • ¼ cup chopped walnuts

Directions
