Chicken Strawberry Salad

Salads are the meal of choice when our Texas temperatures hover in the 90s. In this one, I use locally grown strawberries, fresh greens and chicken strips. It makes a light and colorful lunch on a hot summer day.

    This recipe is so wonderful! I made it for a family lunch, everyone loved it! I didn't have the walnuts, so I used pecans, but I will try it with walnuts soon.
