Ingredients
  

  • Salad Ingredients:
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 1 fresh pineapple peeled, cored and sliced into 1-inch thick rings
  • canned works too
  • 8 cups baby spinach fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries optional
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • quarter of a red onion thinly sliced(optional)
  • lettuces iceberg and romain recommended
  • Honey Garlic Vinaigrette Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • pinch of salt and black pepper each

Instructions
 

  • Brush the chicken on both sides with olive oil, then season generously with garlic powder, salt and pepper. If cooking on stove, slice chicken into strips first.
  • Preheat your outdoor grill to medium-high, or heat a grill pan with added olive oil over med-high heat. Place pineapple slices and chicken breasts on the grill.
  • (I used canned pineapple chunks and lightly drizzled with olive oil and tossed prior to grilling in pan. Cook after turning chicken)
  • Cook for about 10 minutes turning midway or until the chicken is cooked through
  • Let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Slice chicken into strips and cut pineapple into chunks.
  • In a large bowl, toss together spinach, blueberries, feta, red onion, pineapple and chicken until combined. Drizzle or toss with salad dressing, and serve immediately.
  • Arrange greens and vegetables in larger individual bowls layering feta, chicken, avocado, and pineapple on top. Drizzle with honey garlic vinaigrette
  • To Make The Vinaigrette:
  • Whisk all ingredients together until blended. Let sit for at least 10 minutes for flavors to meld. Whisk again until blended, then drizzle over salad.
  • Withhold dressing if not serving immediately or packing it for lunches. Add when serving.
