Gluten Free Strawberry Chicken Spinach Salad with dressing recipe


I love leftover night and this Strawberry Chicken Spinach Salad is a big favorite at our house.  I use leftover roasted chicken, sliced strawberries or dried cranberries, artisan greens, fresh spinach, chopped walnuts or pecans, Parmesan or Feta cheese and the wonderful raspberry poppy seed dressing that I buy from Aldi or make your own from the following recipe!    Yummo.....:)   a little red onions on top are nice on it too
Yes,  that's my gluten free bread. :) Hope you all have a great weekend!!
