This gem is an absolute favorite in my home and I give my husband all the credit.  He came up with it years ago, and come summer, when the strawberries are at their peak, this salad takes center stage.  He even picked out the Trader Joe’s Pear Gorgonzola vinaigrette that goes perfectly with it and is an absolute must!  And we can’t forget the lettuce…  Tender, soft butter lettuce really sets this guy apart and it’s worth the little extra it costs; I promise.

Perfect for this time of year, easy to prep, and oh so good.  The salty, sweet, and nutty are such a great combination of flavors and the chicken really rounds it out to give it some girth to fill you up.

Strawberry Feta Almond Salad

Makes two entree sized salads

1 head of butter lettuce, rinsed and dried
2 4-6 oz. cooked chicken breasts, sliced
2 cups of strawberries, sliced
1/2 small red onion, sliced very thin
1/2 cup reduced fat Feta (I love Trader Joe’s)
handful of toasted, slivered almonds or whole roasted almonds, chopped
Trader Joe’s Pear Gorgonzola dressing- I use about 2-3 T

Toss all of the ingredients together and get ready for delicious!
