The marriage of healthy and delicious was never more harmonious than in this beautiful salad that is a complete meal for lunch or even dinner. The strawberries get marinated in honey and balsamic vinegar which then serves as an oil free dressing for the entire salad. A few salty olives and crunchy walnuts added with perfectly grilled lime cumin grilled chicken add further layers of contrast in taste and texture. Perfect.

Marinade for chicken:

2tsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
