Grilling Season with Salba Chia! #Giveaway

Well, since I have this crazy internal alarm clock that has me getting up at 5:15 every day!!  I thought I would do a giveaway!  I mean, it is Father’s Day WEEKEND and all!  So, I am doing one of the Hubs favorite things!  (OK SLIGHT exaggeration!!)  However, the Hubs does include Salba Chia in his regular diet since I keep in on our kitchen counter and make it easily accessible! This month we are chatting about Salba and GRILLING!!  Thanks to Salba for sending me lots of grilling goodness!


Nothing says summer like grilling! But have you ever tried including chia seeds with your grilling recipes? Grilling is already one of the healthiest ways to cook (as long as you’re careful with marinades!) and by seasoning meats and vegetables with herbs like basil, oregano and thyme, and adding Salba chia seeds, you can give your favorite recipes a boost of nutrition. With these easy and fun recipes, anyone can grill a delicious, healthy meal!

Below are a few of our favorite summertime backyard BBQ recipes using Salba chia seeds. Try out some new recipes, or use the ones below, and be sure to share if you have a new recipe!!

Baby Kale Salad with Strawberries and Salba Chia Seed Dressing


  • 5 oz baby kale (or other lettuce)
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • Any additions you would like (almonds, cheese, etc.)

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 T Salba chia seeds
  • 1 T red wine vinegar
  • 1 T apple cider vinegar
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 ½ T honey (or agave)

Bonus! Place Salba Chia seeds on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 1 hour. The seeds will become crunchy and add texture to salads just like sesame seeds!

Salba Chia Chicken Strips


  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 T grainy mustard
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup Salba chia seeds
  • 2 tsp dried sage
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper


  1. Rinse the chicken under cold water and pat dry. Slice each breast into strips and set aside.
  2. Combine the yogurt and mustard in a bowl; add the chicken and allow it to marinade for a minimum of 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine the panko, chia, sage, salt and several grinds of pepper in a medium bowl and stir well.
  4. Dredge the chicken into the panko mixture and coat all sides well. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until cooked through and panko turn golden. Serve warm.

Salba Chia Fruit Salad


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 4 T Salba chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 5 cups cubed cantaloupe
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 large firm bananas, sliced
  • 2 medium nectarines, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups halved seedless grapes

Directions: In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients; mix well. In a large bowl, combine the fruit. Add dressing and toss to coat. Serve with a slotted spoon.

I also love making my own salad dressing and throwing in a couple of tablespoons of Salba Chia in the dressing!!

It’s time to get your chia on!!

  40. Sarah Hayes says:

    i use them on salads and in smoothies. they are so awesome.

  41. Cynthia P says:

    No, I have actually never tried grilling with Chia seeds. Wouldn’t they lose some of their potential nutrition when heated to such a high degree? And we celebrate our father every day of the year, not just on some commercially established date.

  42. Lisa says:

    I have never cooked with chia seeds, I’ve used them in my smoothies tho! Celebrating my dad, my husband and my father in law today:)
