Grilled Chicken Feta and Strawberry Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette.

How about a beautiful Grilled Chicken Feta and Strawberry Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette for dinner? What would you think about a salad like this when camping? While it can seem difficult, it can easily be done...

We try to (only!) grocery shop one time a week, when on the road camping. Mainly because it is hard to store everything when you over purchase. RV refrigerators are a bit smaller than a household model. So we try to have a main dish salad on grocery shopping day. We continue to eat well, and there is much less to try and store in the fridge. For this composed salad we bought 2 large heads of butter lettuce, an 8oz slab of Feta, and a quart of strawberries.  We thawed three chicken breast halves to grill. 

This beautiful salad is nothing more than a composed salad, that is put together production line style. As we assembled the plates, my son in law cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise to fillet them, added a bit of seasonings then grilled them. Let the grilled chicken rest a few moments, then cut into strips, so it may cool and not overheat the lettuce. You may certainly use your favorite lemon vinaigrette, but I have offered a simple recipe that has a touch of honey in it. 

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • butter lettuce
  • a block or slab of Feta cheese
  • Strawberries
  • chicken breasts
  • lemon juice
  • avocado oil
  • Dijon Mustard
  • salt
  • pepper
  • honey
You will also need the following:
  • small mixing bowl or glass measuring cup
  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • whisk
  • serving bowls
  • grill or frying pan
Now we are ready to begin!

Wash, shake dry, then break the lettuce on each serving plate. 


Cut the Feta into large squares, scatter over the lettuce. 

Add the cut up chicken. 

And lastly the strawberries!

Combine the ingredients for the lemon vinaigrette, drizzle evenly over the salads. 

Lemon Vinaigrette
by the seat of my pants!

1/2 c avocado oil
1/4 c fresh squeezed lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
1 t Dijon Mustard
1 T honey

Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl or 2 cup measuring cup. Whish to combine well. Drizzle over each salad, offering any leftover dressing at the table.

  3. Yum! We need to start thinking about salad weather. Although not this week. It's still winter weather here tomorrow!

    1. I try to get the ingredients for a salad each shopping day, because we don't really eat enough around here...thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

  4. It's Judee from Gluten Free A-Z blog. I enjoyed reading about your strategies while camping. Having salad on shopping day is such a good idea. I live in a condo half the year with a refrigerator that is smaller than I usually enjoy. I have to make lots of adjustments as well. Your salad looks healthy and delicious.
