Kiwi Strawberry Spinach Salad
May 7, 2013
Ready in 20 minutes • Makes 2 servings
6 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast
Juice of 2 lemons (½ cup)
1 sprig fresh rosemary, chopped (or 2 tsp dried)
1½ tsp olive oil, divided
1½ cups fresh strawberries, sliced
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
4 cups fresh spinach
2 kiwis, peeled, cut into thin half-moons
1. Cut chicken crosswise into 1/8" thick slices. Combine lemon juice, chopped rosemary and ½ tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl. Pour mixture over chicken slices to marinate, coating evenly. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare the rest of the ingredients, or marinate overnight for best results.
2. In a blender, combine ½ cup sliced strawberries, remaining oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Blend to incorporate flavors. Taste and adjust as needed.
3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Drizzle water onto skillet. When water sizzles, place chicken, along with the marinade, on the skillet, and cook 3 minutes on one side. Flip and cook 2 more minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink.
4. Divide spinach between 2 big plates. Top each plate with cooked sliced chicken, remaining strawberries and sliced kiwis. Drizzle with dressing. Serve.
