 Strawberry Chicken Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette
Mmmm… this salad was delicious. It is a green salad with strawberries, chicken, a little cheese, and a delicious vinaigrette.  My husband and I love salad but like to mix it up every now and then. 

What you need:

For the Salad: 
  • Salad greens (I did spinach and red lettuce, but anything would do)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced  (you’ll need another half cup for the dressing)
  • 1 or 2 boneless, sinless, chicken breast, diced and cooked
  • a small amount of cheese to top (optional)

For the Dressing:

  •  1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 TBS sugar (you can use more if the strawberries weren’t sweet enough for you)  
  • 1/4 tsp poppy seeds

What you do:

  1. Puree strawberries in a blender or food processor. Add vinegar, mustard, and seasonings. Blend, then add olive oil. Blend until creamy. Taste and adjust seasonings. Add poppy seeds.
  2. Compile the salad to your liking and toss with dressing.
