Strawberry-Chicken Salad #summersalad #strawberry #chicken #walnuts #healthy

So, when I made this salad, I have to admit, I wasn’t too sure about it at first.  Hubs is adamant about no fruit on his salad & in general it’s not really my thing either.  I’m a purist of sorts – salty with salty & sweet with sweet – I’m not a combiner.  Let’s just say that sandwich that Mickey D’s is famous for – the McGriddle – yep, sounds quite disgusting to me – blech!  But that’s me and my food separation issues ;)  To each his/her own, if it toots your horn, so be it.  It just isn’t this gal’s cup of tea!

Well, let’s get back to this yummy strawberry salad, shall we?!

Well, it’s awesome, that’s all I have to say about it…super yummy indeed!  Both hubs & I broke our combo rules on this one, and it did not disappoint.

So, it’s hubs and ME approved, therefore, it made it to the blog & to you :)
