Springtime Strawberry Salad
A delicious, sweet and tangy salad that’s healthy and quick to make. A great way to get kids to eat their greens! This will make 4 entree sized salads.
11 oz spring mix or baby spinach
3 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces (I season with salt and pepper and bake @ 450° F for about 35 mins)
1 lb fresh raw snow peas (also great with fresh raw green beans)
2 lb fresh strawberries, hulled halved and sliced
(1) 15 oz can mandarin oranges
sliced almonds for garnish
Balsamic Dressing (recipe follows)
Fill a large bowl with greens. Top with chicken, peas, strawberries and almonds. Drizzle with balsamic dressing and toss. Best if served chilled.
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup light agave syrup
Whisk together all ingredients and chill. Whisk or shake before serving.
