Strawberry Kiwi Chicken Salad

This healthy Strawberry Kiwi Chicken Salad is full of greens, berries, kiwi, chicken and almond. It’s a great lunch or dinner especially in summer time! I love the flavor combination of sweet strawberries, tangy kiwi, savoury chicken and crunchy . It’s very healthy too! There is only a very small amount of oil and it’s loaded with vitamins, fiber and protein.
