Strawberry Chicken Salad

One of the reasons I love salads so much is for their simplicity. So easy to make but packed with color and flavor.

For this week’s salad, I used pan-seared chicken, added fresh strawberries, red onion, and tossed in some honey roasted pecans all on a bed of soft and buttery Boston lettuce. For fun, I added fried mozzarella cubes instead of shredded cheese.
