  • ½ pound boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 6 cups spring mix lettuce
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 medium avocado, sliced
  • ¼ cup red onion, sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts


  • ½ cup fresh blackberries
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Saute the chicken in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until fully cooked through. Tent with foil and let rest while preparing the rest of the salad.
  • Add the spring mix lettuce to a large bowl. Arrange the blackberries, avocado, red onion, and walnuts on top of the bed of lettuce. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the dressing ingredients except for the salt and pepper. Use a fork to mash the blackberries to release the juices. Whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Slice the cooked chicken and set over the salad. Drizzle with dressing. Serve immediately.
