When it’s hot outside, who wants to be stuck in a hot kitchen cooking food, thus making it even hotter? Not me, that’s for sure, so I’m always looking for meals that are easy to prep for hot summer days but are still healthy and somewhat guilt-free.

And since strawberries are still abundant,¬†Chicken Strawberry Spinach Salad is a great way to put them to good use. The zesty ginger-lime dressing really makes this pop … no boring salad with this one!
