This Chicken Strawberry Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette is the perfect summer salad. Fresh spring mix, grilled chicken, fresh strawberries, and more all tossed with homemade lemon vinaigrette. This salad is sweet, savory, fresh, and healthy!


For the salad:

  • 1 pound chicken, seasoned, grilled & chopped
  • 5 ounces baby spring mix
  • 1 large English cucumber, sliced
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
  • ¼ cup sweetened dried cranberries (optional)
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds (optional)
  • Goat cheese for garnish (optional)

Lemon Vinaigrette

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ½  teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon pepper  (to taste)


  • For the salad: season and grill the chicken, allow to cool. Toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl to combined. Toss with dressing or serve dressing on the side.
  • For the vinaigrette: combine all the ingredients in a glass jar with a lid and shake to combine. If you prefer a less salty dressing, start with ¼ teaspoon. Add additional vinegar or lemon juice to taste. Store dressing at room temperature for up to 2 days.


Chicken can be seasoned with your favorite salt & pepper seasoning. I love Crazy Jane’s Mix Up Salt or Trader Joe’s Lemon Pepper grinders.
