A delicious fresh and homemade Chicken, Feta and Strawberry Salad - a perfect meal for a hot summers day
Salad's do not need to be boring. Long gone are the days, when a salad involved a bowl of greens and not much else. While greens are healthy, fresh and delicious. They are not exactly inspiring on their own, right?
When I was younger, a salad would involve iceberg lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and salad cream and that was it. Certainly wouldn't be my first choice now, if that is all a salad had to offer. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with all those ingredients, and occasionally I will still have something like that as a side to a main meal. But if the salad is my meal, I want it to be delicious, with lots of different ingredients, a flavour explosion in each mouthful.
This Chicken, Feta and Strawberry salad is just that - a complete meal, with lots of little different bites of yumminess, It is salads like this that I LOVE.
Seasoned chicken breast, homemade whole wheat croutons (using my HEb), ripe strawberries, delicious feta cheese and red onion with some baby lettuce leaves. If all those ingredients don't sound good enough, there is even a homemade raspberry vinaigrette - a perfect combination in this Chicken, Feta and Strawberry Salad.
I think this salad covers every taste bud going. Nothing boring or uninspiring here, just fresh, delicious ingredients. You have the protein, the sweetness, the crunch, the cheese and the healthy greens, what more could you ask for?
This Chicken, Feta and Strawberry Salad would be perfect to make the night before to take to work for lunch in a tub, make the dressing and add into a little separate container and you can then add to the salad when ready to eat to keep it nice and fresh. Double or triple the recipe and this would be perfect to take on days out or for a picnic to share with some other great picnic food.
