Chicken Salad Recipe with Strawberries

Strawberry chicken salad with almonds, feta cheese and raspberry vinaigrette. Heavenly!

You really love your chicken salad, but need a fresh idea to make it lighter and add this exotic touch you love so much?

Well, the solution is here: add strawberries and almonds. The sweet and hearty combination is just heavenly. You'll be delighted!

I got that chicken salad recipe from a Thai friend of mine, she's a real wizzard in the kitchen and creates the most fantastic meals that you can imagine.

Lately she has shifted away her focus from sweets and cakes to more healthy and wholesome foods for her husband and 5 year old son.

Join me as raving fan of her newest creation.
