Little buds of green grass are finally starting to peek through the barren ground and pretty soon fields of gorgeous flowers will be in full bloom. The sun is shining longer and longer each day, producing tiny beams of warmth on our faces as we finally emerge from what seemed like the longest winter ever. All of this can only mean one thing…

I love Tyson chicken and that salad sounds amazing! 🙂
It’s so good with a little feta cheese on top too! 🙂
Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love.
I love adding strawberries to my salads. And I love using shortcuts! I usually just use rotisserie chicken for my salads, but these chicken strips are a great idea too!
Win-win! 🙂 Thanks Stephanie!!
