summer strawberry salad

strawberry salad

Just when I thought eating healthy was getting boring my friend Sara introduced me to my newest salad obsession.  She created a strawberry salad after eating one at Panera Bread.  She took the idea and made it her own.  Then she told me about it.  And I couldn’t stop thinking about it.  I didn’t have all the ingredients in the fridge that she put in her salad, but I had enough ingredients to whip one up with my own spin on it.  An obsession was born.  Since I made this salad 2 weeks ago I have eaten it 9 times.  Lunch.  Dinner.  With chicken.  Without.  Doesn’t matter.   I seriously think it is the greatest salad ever and it just feels so..Summer.

Please make one.  But make sure to grab a lot of strawberries at the store first.  Because I promise you will not just eat this salad once.

You can thank me (or Sara) later.  Enjoy!  XO




Strawberries (sliced)

Slivered almonds

Goat Cheese (optional)

Grilled Chicken

Poppy Seed Dressing (get the Panera one from the grocery store.  Amazing)

Throw all the ingredients together in the bowl and toss with the poppy seed dressing.  Seriously.  That’s it.  Can’t get any easier.  You have no excuse not to make this salad.
