It’s Ry again! Back again with another delish meal idea for you to try out this week. Today, we’re doing a strawberry chicken salad with some of my favorite add-ins!

Say hello to my current salad fixation: tender, juicy chicken paired with succulent strawberries, a sprinkling of your favorite cheese, and a delightful crunch of pecans. YUM. Every forkful is a dance of flavors that’ll have you craving more. Get ready to enjoy a salad that is not only delicious but will keep you full for more than 30 minutes (because we like salads that keep us full here 😉) 🍓🥗.

Also, to those who may be thinking this… Heck no, fruit in salads isn’t just a ‘summer thing!’ Or I should say, it doesn’t have to be! I love enjoying this meal all year round, and know that you will too. Especially on those days when you want to throw something together quickly and easily, without sacrificing flavor or satiety.

If you’re ready for to enjoy this strawberry chicken salad yourself, then keep scrolling for the full recipe!
