DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a large container. Place the chicken in and turn to coat evenly. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

  • Once marinated, spray your grill with cooking spray and heat to medium/high heat. Cook the chicken until no longer pink inside, about 6-7 minutes, turning once. Note that the honey will make the chicken look burned, but it's just the natural caramelization. Remove from the grill and cover to let rest.

  • Spray the grill again and place the sliced nectarines onto it. Cook until grill marks form and the nectarines soften, flipping once. This only takes about 2-3 minutes per side.

  • Divide the spinach, freshly sliced strawberries, goat cheese, toasted almonds, and red onions between 4 large bowls. Slice the rested chicken and place on top of the salads.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar and honey. While whisking constantly, stream in the olive oil and whisk until smooth and creamy. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Divide the vinaigrette between the bowls, toss the salads and devour!
