  • Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, shallot, honey, and the remaining 5 Tbsp. oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper in a large bowl. Finely chop 1/4 cup mint; add to the dressing in the bowl, whisking to combine. Reserve 2 Tbsp. of the dressing.

  • Tear or coarsely chop the remaining 3/4 cup mint leaves; add to the bowl along with mixed greens. Toss gently to combine. Divide the salad among 4 dinner bowls. Combine the chicken and the reserved 2 Tbsp. dressing in the large bowl; stir to coat. Divide the chicken, strawberries, snap peas, goat cheese, and almonds among the 4 dinner bowls. Garnish with more mint, if desired.

Tips

Tip: No grill? Preheat broiler to high. Prepare chicken as directed in Step 1 and broil on a large baking sheet 3 to 4 inches from the heat source, flipping once, until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, 4 to 6 minutes per side.
