postheadericon Lime-Berry Chicken Salad Recipe

Ingredients

2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into thin strips
3 tablespoons frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground dry mustard
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

1 pound baby spinach leaves
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar snap peas, ends and strings removed
1/2 cup pecan halves

Directions

Toss chicken breasts, limeade, and pepper in a bowl. Cook the chicken breasts in a skillet until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 8 minutes. Remove skillet from the heat and set aside.

Combine sugar, vinegar, salt, mustard, and onion in a blender. Process for about 20 seconds. With the blender on high speed, gradually add oil in a slow and steady stream. Stir in poppy seeds.

Arrange spinach on 4 salad plates and top with strawberries, peas, pecans, and the cooked chicken. Serve with the poppy seed dressing.
