Strawberry Spinach Chicken Salad

"This is so refreshing and not too hard to make! It almost makes itself! You could use beef in place of the chicken, or turkey. Use melon, oranges, pineapple or papaya as fresh fruit alternatives."

  1. Fabulous tasting salad Di. I love the freshness that the strawberries really bring to this salad plus the cruchiness of the roasted pecans...and the dressing...TDF. :-) Made for Strawberry Tag in KK's forum~


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
