Strawberry Chicken Smoked Cheese Salad

This recipe originally appeared on the blog in July 2018. I have uploaded new images and slightly altered the recipe while the blogpost itself remains the same.

Hello, my friends! I hope you are doing fine. I need to apologize as I have neglected to visit your scrumptious blogs this week. I open my Bloglovin’ every morning, get scary how productive you are, and close it. Yup, this week has been insanely crazy. I also owe you an apology as I have failed to post a new recipe earlier this week. My last recipe – luscious Hazelnut Honey Cinnamon Ice Cream – happened almost a week ago. I have so many things to finish yet, but I hope it gets better by next Tuesday. And I am certainly going to start visiting your blogs, too. Please, hold on posting new recipes :)

Don’t worry, though. I have plenty of recipes that are ready to go (Once I sort out and edit the photos haha). There are a couple of fabulous ideas (ice cream and cookies) I am excited to share with you, but I am keeping them for later since they need more of my attention. But I promise you will like them.

Today I am going to keep it simple and short. Nothing complicated. Still, this Strawberry Chicken Smoked Cheese Salad is a very elegant meal. It only has a few simple ingredients including strawberries, peppery arugula, succulent iceberg, juicy chicken, and smoked gouda. And the dressing? It’s super delicious and refreshing – made with frozen cherries and mint. Of course, you can use fresh cherries too, but fresh cherries deserve more than being used in the dressing. Also, pitting? No, thanks. But I will post a salad with fresh cherries too – please stay tuned.

That’s it for now.

Cheers!

    I’m with you Ben. It’s never easy trying to balance creating new recipes, taking the pictures, editing the pictures and also trying to keep up with your favourite blogging friends too! Your smoked gouda salad sounds lovely. The pictures look amazing! As a cheese, gouda is one of my favourites. My mum used to buy that all the time when my brother and I were younger. I need to go and get some!

    Ben, this is a beautiful salad! I too, love the smoked Gouda in here. So much flavor! I noticed you used “chocolate mint” leaves. Never heard of this variety. Sounds amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

    I totally know the feeling, Ben! And for us it often happens in the summer, too. There are always just so many things we want to get out and do while the weather is nice. I hope life slows down for you soon! Also, I love this salad. So many flavors going on in there…and the smoked gouda takes it to a whole new level for me! :-)

    OK Ben. It’s like you knew exactly what I was craving for lunch today. How do you do that? I just loooove putting strawberries in my salad and I almost always eat salads all day long in the summer. This is perfect! I hope things slow down a bit for you soon. Have a great weekend!
