An Easy Breezy Summer Strawberry Chicken Salad
(makes 4 meal-sized salads)
I love to make this on steamy summer evenings when I do not want to heat up the kitchen. It’s light, refreshing and nutritious, yet pretty enough for company! Enjoy!
6 cups baby spinach
1 deli rotisserie chicken1 pint strawberries, sliced
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
2/3 cup feta cheese
½ cup dried cranberries
Remove skin from chicken and pull meat from bone, chopping into bite-sized pieces. Set aside. Heat a large fry pan to medium heat. Arrange walnuts in pan and toast lightly, 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. When nuts begin to give off an aroma, they are ready. Don’t let them turn brown or they will be burnt! Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, toss spinach with the Honey Balsamic dressing. Arrange greens on salad plates and top with all remaining ingredients. Serve with triangles of moist zucchini bread ( Fresh Market sells a delicious pre-baked one).
