Strawberry Chicken Salad

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)

Updated June 20, 2014

This is a quintessential summer dinner salad -- lovely, light, and different. Dress with strawberry vinaigrette dressing and you have a real treat on a hot summer night.

Ingredients:

  • ½ lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, grilled or broiled
  • 8 cups lettuce, spinach, and/or arugula (fill a 2-quart mixing bowl)
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • ¼ cup sliced or slivered toasted almonds (toasted pine nuts or sunflower seeds are also good)
  • 2 oz. feta cheese, crumbled (Parmesan also works well)

Preparation:

Toss the greens with about ¼ cup strawberry vinaigrette or other oil and vinegar type salad dressing. Arrange the rest of the ingredients on top of the greens. For meal-sized salads, distribute between two plates or bowls.

Nutritional Information (without dressing): Each serving has 9 grams effective carbohydrate plus 5.5 grams fiber, 35 grams protein, and 319 calories.

I've been eating this salad for years - long before I started low carb living. I've always used a Rasberry Vinagrette and have recently discovered Walden Farms has this flavor and it is quite tasty without adding any calories, fat or carbs! I have taken large bowls of this salad to several neighborhood bbq's and other outdoor events and all my friends love it too.
