Let's get creative!

Do you know why I love salads so much?!? Because you can make them in so many different ways. This salad was incredible! The perfect meal for those warmer Spring and Summer months.

Chicken and Asparagus Salad with Strawberry Dressing

1 cup cut fresh asparagus, 1 inch pieces, steamed until crisp-tender
1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 cups European blend salad greens
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
1 1⁄2 cups sliced strawberries
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cooked and sliced crosswise
salt and pepper
1⁄4 cup coarsely chopped and toasted walnuts or 1⁄4 cup pine nuts

5 fresh strawberries, halved lengthwise
1 tablespoon orange juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
1⁄2 teaspoon sugar

Add lemon juice to a small bowl; dip avocado slices in lemon juice and set the avocado aside.
In a big salad bowl, add salad greens, asparagus, cucumber, avocado, 1 1/2 cup strawberries, and chicken; toss to combine.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle with nuts.
For dressing: add strawberries and orange juice to a blender or food processor; cover and process until smooth; pour puree into a bowl.
Add remaining dressing ingredients; stir to combine.
Pour dressing over salad; toss to coat.
Serve immediately.
