Super Simple Strawberry Chicken Salad

Want to get healthier this summer? Try this Super Simple Strawberry Chicken Salad and have dinner ready in 20 minutes!I remember the first time I tried a Strawberry Chicken Salad. I was at a Red Robin Restaurant of all places.

Since then, variations of the Strawberry Chicken salad have popped up at many restaurants and all over Pinterest. I picked and choose what I really liked (and did not) and came up with a simple recipe that I can put together in 20 minutes or so, is super healthy, and the total ingredients are reasonably priced.

Now, I do things a little differently here at ASimpleLifeToo. I like things short, sweet and simple… so I am going to get right into the recipe!




Strawberry Chicken Salad Ingredients:

1 lb of chicken

4 – 6 cups of baby spinach

2 small avocados

21/2 cups of strawberries

1 cup frozen corn off of the cob

1 cup of your favorite nuts

3/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

pinch of salt and pepper

Strawberry Chicken Salad Instructions:

Step 1 – Chop up chicken and saute for about 10 minutes (with a sprinkle of salt and pepper). Place on a platter.

Step 2 – Chop up the strawberries and the avocados and place on the platter with the chicken.

Step 3 – Thaw corn or cook for a minute and place on platter.

Step 4 – Place 1 cup of nuts on the platter or you can saute them for a couple of minutes in oil or butter.

Step 5 – Blend 1/2 cup of the strawberries with the oil, vinegar, and pinch of salt and pepper.

See how easy that is. And it tastes wonderful!

My goal this Spring and Summer is to help my family get healthier and loose some weight. I plan on making salads a minimum of 5 times per week.

Here are a couple of hot cookbooks that focus on making healthy and flavorful salads:

  • salt
  • pepper
  • chili powder
  • cheese
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • salsa
  • ranch dressing

Instructions

  1. If you went for the optional onion, dice it, then heat oil on medium and saute the onion for a few minutes.
  2. Add the 1 lb ground meat and brown it over medium heat.
  3. Add the 8 to 10 cups cooked beans and stir. Add salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste.
  4. Cook until meat is cooked and beans are hot.
  5. Shred lettuce, dice tomatoes, shred cheese, set out salsa, ranch dressing, and tortillas.
  6. Serve by setting a base of tortillas on a plate. Add a scoop or two of the meat and bean mixture. Top as wanted with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, ranch, etc…
  7. Should make 3 meals for a family of 5. Stretch to 4 meals by serving Spanish rice and/or re-fried beans as side dishes.
