Easy Gluten-Free Chicken and Strawberry Spinach Salad

Easy Gluten-Free Chicken and Strawberry Spinach Salad

I enjoy this Easy Gluten-Free Chicken and Strawberry Spinach Salad because I can use leftover chicken. If you purchase a rotisserie chicken and find yourself with leftovers, it is a perfect way to make it into a new dinner. However, if there’s no leftover chicken, you can always poach a couple of chicken breasts to use instead.

This fast and easy salad is excellent and full of vitamins. I normally serve the dressing on the side so everybody can control the amount of dressing. This strawberry spinach salad is nice as a main dish, but it would also make a good side dish!
