Incorporating salads regularly into my diet is one way that I try to stay healthy. It’s not always easy to get my greens in though. I find getting my vegetables in is the hardest food group for me. Carbs no problem. Veggies take more planning and effort. I’ve been experimenting with different salad recipes, and I discovered this amazing Berry Chicken Salad with Balsamic Strawberry Dressing. I could eat this every week, it’s that good!
