We had a friend over for dinner tonight and I used the opportunity to make Strawberry Peach Chicken Salad .  It was a great success.  The sweetness of the peaches and strawberries combined with the distinct savory taste of basil, all tied together with chicken and a homemade lemon poppyseed dressing made it an unusual but delicious offering.  Try this for a quick dinner full of antioxidants and vitamins, especially A and K.  You will love it! 

Strawberry Peach Chicken Salad
5 cups of spinach, chopped
1 heart of Romaine, chopped
1/2 cucumber, peeled and diced
2 peaches, cubed
1 cup strawberries, sliced
3/4 cup walnuts, lightly toasted (after being soaked and dried)
3 Tablespoons  fresh basil chopped finely
3 cups  leftover rotisserie  chicken or 2 chicken breasts cooked, prepared to your liking. ( I like Mimi's Sticky Chicken)
Wash and spin dry the spinach and lettuce.  Chop and place in a large salad bowl.  Slice the strawberries and peaces into bite sized pieces.  Add the diced cucumbers and finely chopped basil.  Toss the salad well to mix in the basil.  Add the toasted chopped walnuts and chicken. Top with Lemon Poppy Dressing.

Lemon Poppy Dressing
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 spring onion
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 Tablespoons date sugar or sugar of choice
1 1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt

To make the salad dressing, pour all the ingredients except the poppy seeds in the blender and blend on high until creamy.  Add the poppy seeds and blend until mixed well. Dress the salad lightly and serve the remaining dressing in a small pitcher on the side.  
Serves 4 

I started out with this recipe from Southern Living and changed it to my liking.
