Strawberry Chicken Salad with Pecans and Sun Dried Tomatoes June 14, 2017 20:10
Strawberry season is just about at peak here in the Northeast and these juicy jems make this easy main dish salad shine with flavor.
We've used our Bruschetta Dipping oil blend as the base for the dressing, it's packed with sun dried tomatoes (no sulfites!) and adds just a note of sweetness. We had leftover chicken that we had grilled the day before and used that as the protein.
Mix 1 tablespoon dipping oil blend with 1 tablespoon hot water. Let sit 30 seconds. Whisk in 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar.
Take 1 clove fresh garlic cut in half and rub inside of salad bowl. Add chopped lettuce, 1/2 shallot chopped, pecans, protein of choice, crumbled feta or goat cheese and a pint of washed strawberries cut into quarters. Fresh grape tomatoes would be a nice addition but we didn't have any on hand.
Pour vinaigrette over salad, toss and serve.
