From Supporting Role To Rising Star

The other day when I made my strawberry jalapeno salad/salsa, Strawberry Jalapeno Salad I enjoyed it so much as a side dish, that I decided to have it again.  This time, however, I made it as the main attraction.  It was so cool and refreshing, especially with a cool, crisp white blend on the side.


To transform the salad into a main meal, I added fresh spinach, red onion slices, cucumber slices and red bell pepper slices, then topped it all with sliced chicken breast.  It’s cool, easy and very refreshing, especially with a lime vinaigrette.


Lime Vinaigrette


1-2 TBSP honey

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1/3 cup lime juice

1/2 cup olive oil

1-2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp salt


Combine everything together and mix well.  Top or toss your strawberry chicken salad with it right before serving.



For the finishing touches, I added some toasted almond slivers and sliced green onions on top of the sliced chicken breast.


This quick and easy salad is definitely a delicious way to cool down on those days when the temperatures are really soaring.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.
