Strawberry Chicken Summer Salad on plate

I have a serious obsession with putting strawberries in my salads, especially during the summer when they are just too lush and gorgeous to ignore! They are the perfect salad topping, adding just a touch of sweetness to your salads. And my favorite way to dress a salad with strawberries on it is with balsamic vinegar. Strawberries + balsamic vinegar = B.F.F.’s. Always and forever.

I think I have been making a version of this salad for over 10 years now. It’s just simple, light, flavorful, and well, perfect!
