Chicken Strip Salad Recipe

Chicken Strip Salad Recipe

Pretty chicken strips top this hearty salad sent in by Clara Coulston of Washington Court House, Ohio. Filled with good-for-you vegetables, it's coated in a tangy balsamic-and-mustard dressing. "As a variation, you can try turkey tenderloins and arugula instead of the chicken and mixed greens," Clara recommends.
