Chicken is such a versatile meat that you can serve it several times in a week without cooking the same thing over and over. This recipe is great for lunch or dinner. After trying a version of this salad at a restaurant, I went home and created my own low fat version.

High in protein and low in fat, chicken is an excellent choice for a main dish. Strawberries are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants, a beautiful fruit that helps to aid in digestion. Celery adds flavor and antioxidants with few calories. Walnuts are a good source of protein, adds a nice crunch to a salad and a great topping substitute to croutons.
