CL Comments: Using precooked chicken makes this dish a snap to throw together for lunch. Serve with focaccia topped with coarse salt and rosemary to complement the sweet strawberries and raisins in the salad.
Comments from a PA Kitchen: Tasty, simple, will make again. If you bulk up with extra greens, you might want to have a little extra balsamic available for sprinkling, as the dressing basically just coats the chicken/strawberry mixture. Good flavors and pretty too!

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 2 breasts)
2 cups quartered small strawberries (about 1 pint)
1/3 cup finely chopped celery
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons golden raisins
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups gourmet salad greens

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine sesame seeds and next 6 ingredients (sesame seeds through pepper) in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Pour over chicken mixture; toss well to coat. Cover and chill 1 hour. Serve over salad greens.
