 Like spring in a salad! Tender basil leaves available on young spring plants add mild flavor and vivid color to the fabulous, nutrient-loaded vinaigrette.

(staff favorite)

  1. In a blender, combine all vinaigrette ingredients until smooth. Makes ¾ cup.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Coat a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg and sour cream. Stir together bread crumbs and sage in another medium bowl. Add chicken to egg mixture. Stir to combine. Transfer chicken, a few pieces at a time, into bread crumbs. Roll, and press to coat all sides. Arrange chicken in a single layer in prepared pan, leaving space between each piece.
  4. Bake for 12–15 minutes, turning after 5 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink.
  5. Meanwhile, divide spinach, snap peas, strawberries and avocado among four plates. Top with chicken, almonds and basil, and drizzle generously with vinaigrette.
