Chicken Salad Bowl with Avocado, Strawberry, and Walnut

I have a weird method of cooking for Mike and I.

One thing I adore about him is how even though he is a crazy-picky eater, if it’s a dish he likes, he doesn’t mind eating it for leftovers…for a week straight. Yup, I’m a lucky girl.

So as per his request, I usually end up making a big batch of one of his favorite meals and packing it up in individual portions so he can take one to work every day.

That leaves me on my own to make whatever I want for myself.

I usually raid the fridge or freezer for leftovers, or take a peek into the pantry to see what can be whipped up quickly. In the end, it’s usually a salad that I put together using any odds and end that we have on hand.

Some of the ingredients might sound strange in there, but everything comes together perfectly on your palate.

    I love big bowls of salad like this with all sorts of goodies. It’s always nice to mix up flavors and textures for a healthy, satisfying meal. I’ll whip out one of these bowls for lunch – thanks for the inspiration, lady!!
