Dark Chocolate Balsamic & Walnut Oil Chicken Breast Salad

3 to 4 fresh chicken breasts
1 cup Maine-ly Drizzle's Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup Maine-ly Drizzle Walnut oil

1 sweet onion
Fresh spinach
Chopped walnuts
Feta cheese
Fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries)


Preparation


Take chicken breasts and add ¼ cup of dark chocolate balsamic and ¼ cup of walnut oil. Set aside in refrigerator for a few hours.

Next, place 2 tablespoons of walnut oil into a frying pan over low heat. Add a few handfuls of fresh spinach. Wilt the spinach on low heat until it is the consistency you prefer (wilted but not too soft). Place the spinach on 3 or 4 plates. Top each salad with chopped walnuts, 1/8 cup chopped sweet onion, and 2 tablespoons feta cheese.

While building the salads, grill the marinated chicken breasts. Chop the grilled chicken breasts into cubes and add to the salads. Finish with a vinaigrette for the salad with 2/3 cup dark chocolate balsamic and 1/3 walnut oil. Top with your favorite fresh berries.

The vinaigrette is also very delicious enjoyed with vanilla ice cream and fresh berries!
