1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon dry basil leaves

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon avocado oil

6 cups baby spinach

1 pint blackberries

2 Mega Kiwi, sliced

1 pear, thinly sliced

1/4 cup sliced red onion

1 avocado, sliced

2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

2 tablespoons chopped walnuts


3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon dry basil leaves

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

salt & pepper to taste

Aren't these delightful? The recipe doesn't usually call for pear, so feel free to leave it out if you'd like. I happen to have these amazing pears from our pear tree, and couldn't resist adding them to this salad with the avocado and Mega Kiwi from Sam's.


1. To a small bowl, add garlic powder, dry basil leaves, black pepper and salt. Mix together and season both sides of the chicken breast with the spice blend.

2. Heat large skillet to medium high heat. Add avocado oil to the pan and then add seasoned chicken breasts. Saute each side for 4-6 minutes. Until both sides have a nice sear on them and they are no longer pink when cut into them. Remove from pan and let rest for 3 minutes. Slice the chicken and set aside.

3. To a medium bowl, add balsamic vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard, honey, dry basil leaves, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Whisk together until the vinegar and honey no longer separate and dressing becomes thick.

4. Assemble the salad: to a large bowl add spinach, blackberries, Mega Kiwi, pears, red onion, avocado, feta cheese, walnuts and sliced chicken.

5. Serve with balsamic dressing on the side.

Happy eating!
