Savory Summer Strawberry Salad

Tonight, I was excited because I had an abundance of fresh new groceries in my kitchen. Don’t you just love that feeling? However, the practical domestic Laura made me consider the “what could go bad first” conundrum. Well, I had some spinach, kale and a rotisserie chicken so… this recipe for Savory Summer Strawberry Salad was born.

It’s only Tuesday. I actually had to stop and think about that sentence. It feels more like Thursday. I wanted a simple recipe, minimal effort but an abundance of flavor and comfort. And no, I’m not a high maintenance chick either.

What I came up with

So, here’s what I came up with for dinner. It’s a simple summer salad that is perfect for a quiet night at home. It’s also husband approved!
