Chicken and Asparagus Salad

Chicken and Asparagus Salad – Strawberry Dressing

I’m pretty picky with salads, but this Chicken and Asparagus Salad is a huge hit! Love all the flavors; the strawberries add the perfect sweetness.

Incredible salad — a perfect lunch on a warm spring day.

The only change I made was to add a tiny bit more vinegar to the dressing. Other than that I made it exactly as stated and it was fabulous!

Very yummy!
