Strawberry Mandarin Walnut Salad

One great thing about moving is when you unpack, you find tons of hidden treasures you forgot you had.  I just found my salad chopper that I had completely forgotten existed and was so excited to use it. This salad is one of those salads that is just that much better chopped, so that each bite has a little bit of chicken, strawberry, mandarin orange, and walnuts.  With so many flavors, I used a simple oil and vinegar as the dressing.  I can see this being a summer night staple, especially after hot days at the beach!

Add lettuce to a large bowl.  Top with fruit, chicken, and nuts.
Add dressing and chop.

Tip: Use an egg slicer to get perfect, even strawberry slices.  Quick and easy!
