This chicken, berry, and almond salad is full of so much goodness. Perfect for a refreshing salad all summer long!

In the summer time, I want to eat veggies, and mostly fruits all day long. They’re just something about biting into a cold juicy piece of fresh fruit, like a strawberry, or a peach, or a slice of watermelon.
This chicken, berry, and almond salad is the perfect salad for summer time. It’s refreshing with lots of cold lettuce and spinach, and fresh berries and chicken. You can serve it with cold or warm chicken, whichever you prefer. And so good topped with creamy poppyseed dressing.
One thing I dislike about buying fresh produce though, is that we often don’t eat all of it before it starts to go bad and we have to throw it out. I recently got my hands on some FreshWorks™ Produce Savers and so I tested them out by putting half of the spinach, strawberries and blueberries I got into the Produce Saver, and keeping half in the store packaging.
I left my produce in their for 2 weeks, to see the difference, and wow, you guys, everything looked much better that was kept in the FreshWorks Produce Saver. Just look at these photos, to see how everything looked after one week, and then two weeks.
It’s hard to show the difference in the photos. But the spinach was much more crisp (vs wilty in the store packaging), the strawberries were a little bruised, but still great, especially for something like smoothies (vs shriveled in the store packaging), and the blueberries were much juicer and plumper in the FreshWorks Produce Savers.

This salad is so light, its great for lunch, a lighter dinner, or serve it up in small portions as a side dish.
