Chicken and Strawberry Summer Salad

I love summertime!! I love the heat, I love lazy summer days, playing at the pool, staying up late, I love it all. I also love summertime food. I especially love a big salad for dinner (or lunch) when it's super hot outside. I think it's too hard to eat salad in the winter time, it's too dark and too cold outside to eat something cold; It just feels wrong.

So here is a recipe for one of my favorite summer salads.

Chicken and Strawberry Summer Salad

3-5 cups shredded romaine lettuce
2-3 cooked chicken breasted, shredded
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1-2 Tbs. bleu cheese

Poppy Seed Dressing

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 Tbs. mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 red onion
1/2 Tbs. poppy seeds

Blend all ingredients except poppy seeds until onion is pureed. Add poppy seeds and pulse a couple of times.
