Strawberry Chicken Salad…

This flavorful Strawberry Chicken Salad is a perfect summer meal. Spinach, cucumbers, avocado, red onions and lots of fresh strawberries complement the chicken perfectly, and the dish gets extra citrus goodness from a homemade vinaigrette. Don’t save all of those sweet, ripe strawberries for dessert! They’re great in savory dishes, too.

With its tantalizing flavors and gorgeous presentation, this simple salad makes for a lovely meal to serve guests on a hot summer evening.

It really is no secret at all that I love a good salad. It has helped me to keep a healthy diet and maintain my goals but at the moment I need to loose some additional weight. I’m on the 10 day salad challenge, one new salad a day. Of course I have to increase my workout so I can still enjoy a cocktail every once in a while, but healthy eating is key to me losing the additional pounds.

What’s your favorite meal to make during the heatwave of summer?
