About This Recipe

There’s nothing like a chicken salad in the spring and summer. There are so many different combinations of this type of salad. My favorites include the fruits of spring and summer.

Strawberries and raspberries are the perfect additions to this gorgeous salad. I add some fresh asparagus as well for color, flavor, and texture. The dressing is made of more raspberries, pureed with mayonnaise and raspberry yogurt along with some fresh mint. You could use strawberry yogurt in place of the raspberry yogurt if you’d like.

This salad is gorgeous, colorful, fragrant, and healthy. You’ll make it often this spring and summer!
