First of all, HAPPY EASTER! Here's a little recipe that's perfect for today. Strawberry Chicken Salad...it's our go-to spring/summer salad and is seriously so yummy!
Start by making the dressing. Homemade dressings are the best!
This dressing is really easy because you just throw everything in a blender :) Add 2 cups of oil, 1 cup of sugar, 2/3 cup white vinegar, 1 1/4 cup chopped red onion, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 2 tsp. dijon to your blender and mix. It makes a pretty pink dressing that you'll set aside for later. This makes enough dressing for a very large salad.
Next you'll want to make your candied pecans. Some people buy the pecans already candied, but they're so easy to make yourself!
Just put the nuts in a pan, add some sugar (no measurements needed) and stir over medium heat until the sugar is melted and the pecans are coated. Be sure to keep a close eye on them because they will burn fast! Once they're done lay them out on a pan or plate to cool before breaking them apart.
Now it's time to put together your salad! Add your lettuce, sliced strawberries, feta cheese, pecans, and chicken (our Perfect Chicken goes great in this salad, but this time we just shredded a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken to save time).
Pour your dressing over the salad and serve!
P.s. We love Easter and wanted to share a little bit about what we believe. Check out the video below.
