Grilled Chicken Strawberry Salsa Salad

I have been getting requests for the recipe of this gorgeous looking salad I posted last night. Very flavorful, summery and healthy.

I cut my chicken breasts in half length wise, to make 4 ounce portions. I used Bella’s BBQ rub since I still had plenty left over from Memorial Day. I really like the flavor of the rub with the strawberry salsa. You can cook your chicken breasts on the grill, on a cast iron skillet, on a sheet pan in the oven or use your air fryer. The choice is yours.
