Grilled Chicken & Strawberry Cobb Salad

Ontario strawberries are in season! Of course we can enjoy strawberries on their own – no need to
enhance their wonderfully sweet and just slightly sour taste. However, strawberries can definitely
enhance a salad. This month try this Grilled Chicken & Strawberry Cobb Salad to bring some variety to your lunch or supper. You might even have your own garden lettuce to use with this recipe found here.
