1. Set your oven to 400*. On a greased baking sheet, lay your chicken breasts evenly. Lightly drizzle the chicken with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked through - it should appear completely opaque when cut through. If you have a meat thermometer, make sure it has reached an internal temperature of 165*.

2. Once the chicken has cooled, chop into cubes.

3. On a second greased baking sheet, evenly place your cubed summer squash. Drizzle with olive oil and place in the oven. Cook for 25 - 30 minutes, or until the squash can be easily pierced with a fork.

4. Mix your arugula and spinach in a large bowl and add cilantro. Top with chicken and summer squash.

5. Using a food processor or blender, add all citrus vinaigrette dressing ingredients and blend until smooth. Drizzle over your salad and enjoy!
