Recipe: Chicken Strawberry Salad

I really like having salad meals for dinner around once a week.  Pigg#1 has learned that salad is really good for him and makes him strong and that it can taste delicious.  This is one of my favorite salads to make because there is so much yumminess that you forget you’re eating lettuce too.  I like to make the chicken and pecans ahead so they are easy to throw in the salad and I usually make extra chicken to use in salad wraps because it is so good!  And I usually put the salad right on to the individual plates instead of making a platter with beautiful presentation.  It works better for our family.  And extra salad just goes into a bowl all mixed together…Pigg#1 is sure to ask for seconds (except for the pecans.  He thinks they are spicy) and Pigg#2 is sure to ask for more strawberries and pecans.
