  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup champagne vinegar
  • 2 tbsp mustard whole grain dijon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp local honey substitute with agave
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder


  • 9 oz chicken
  • 5 oz baby spinach and kale mix
  • 8 oz strawberries
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup red onion finely chopped


  • Prepare the champagne dressing first by combining extra-virgin olive oil, champagne vinegar, whole grain dijon mustard, lemon juice, honey, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a mason jar with lid.
  • Secure the lid tightly and shake well until all ingredients are well-combined. Refrigerate while you prepare your salad.
  • If starting with uncooked chicken breast, prepare chicken by lightly brushing 3 chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkling with salt and pepper.
  • Place in a foil or parchment paper-lined pan and bake on 350 F for 25 minutes until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 F.
  • Slice chicken into pieces. Rather than baking, the chicken breast may alternatively be grilled, but substituting boneless chicken breast.
  • Combine chicken, quartered strawberries, walnuts, red onion, and feta cheese in a large bowl. Toss liberally. Top onto bed of mixed greens.
  • Serve alongside champagne dressing – be sure to shake or whisk dressing well before serving, as ingredients will settle.
