This Strawberry Salad Topped with Pecans and a creamy poppy seed dressing is fresh and delicious! Spinach salad tossed with fresh strawberries, diced chicken, and pecans. The dressing has a nice tartness to offset the sweet strawberries. Strawberries are filled with potent antioxidants that are proven to protect the body’s cells from free radical damage. Protecting your heart, and possibly preventing cancers. This is the perfect dish for a Summer lunch or light dinner. The chicken and spinach provide a protein rich meal that will leave you satisfied.
