Spicy Chicken & Strawberry Salad

Spicy Chicken & Strawberry Salad

Probably one of my favorite ways to serve salad is with some sort of fruit in it.  When strawberries are in season, I slice them in half and toss them with crisp lettuce, creamy cheese and chicken or steak.  The sweetness mixed with all of the other ingredients makes for a bowl of deliciousness.

This Spicy Chicken & Strawberry Salad would make a great weeknight meal.  Broil the chicken with our Smoky Honey Habanero rub and while it's cooking, toss some greens, strawberries, crumbled bleu cheese and dice avocado.  Make a quick vinaigrette (recipe below) and top with sliced chicken and dinner is served.
