A refreshing chicken salad with fresh strawberries, red onions, crumbled feta cheese and sliced almonds on a bed of spinach. The simple balsamic vinegar dressing enhances the flavors.
This yummy low carb chicken salad. It is really very simple and you can swap out or add in ingredients based on your preference. Don’t be afraid to add in blueberries, mandarin oranges or the beloved avocado. Also, if your not a fan of feta cheese, you can swap it for mini mozzarella balls. I switch up this spinach salad based on what I have available and fresh in my fridge, so feel free to do the same. For this particular recipe, I wanted to keep it healthy, easy and still tasty!
