Why I Love This Recipe

Tasty AND Healthy...this is a double threat dish that allows you to enjoy something that's good for you without losing flavor. The key to making this dish work is finding good strawberries that have enough sweetness. That's why the TSP of sugar is optional. That sweet will offset the bitter and sour flavors from the dijon and vinegar.

And if you want to share the salad with a friend, why not have a bottle of Brut Rosé over good conversation?


Ingredients You'll Need

1 rotisserie chicken, meat pulled and placed in a medium bowl
¼ cups sliced pecans, toasted
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
2 TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 TSP dijon mustard
1 TSP sugar (optional)
½ red onion, finely diced
½ cup celery, finely diced
¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped
2 cups strawberries, cleaned and sliced into fourths
5 cups bibb and butter lettuce chopped


Directions

In bowl with chicken, combine all ingredients except chopped lettuce. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour letting ingredients blend together. Fan out chopped lettuce greens on a plate, then pour mixture over greens to serve.
