A quick blender vinaigrette does double duty as dressing for this strawberry spinach salad and, with the addition of ketchup and strawberry preserves, as a barbecue sauce for the tenders.

  • Combine 1 cup strawberries, vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in oil. Transfer 1/2 cup of the vinaigrette to a large bowl. Add ketchup and preserves to the blender and pulse until smooth.

  • Sprinkle chicken with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Oil the grill rack. Grill the chicken until it releases easily, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and baste with the BBQ sauce from the blender. Cook, flipping and basting every 15 seconds, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes.

  • Add spinach, almonds, feta, basil and the remaining 1 cup strawberries to the vinaigrette; toss to combine. Serve the salad topped with the chicken.

I made it last night. We both love it. I asked me husband if there was anything he would want differently next time. I loved it just as it was. I did not use the blender. Figured it would be a lot to clean. I just cut it all up, put it together and used a potato masher. It will be a great Spring/Summer recipe all year Read More
