Strawberry Chicken and Spinach Pasta Salad will become your go-to salad this summer! This delicious salad is packed with flavor from the grilled chicken, strawberries, spinach and poppy seed dressing!

Strawberry Chicken and Spinach Pasta Salad I love that summer is here. We have been having such a great one so far, and we have more fun summer plans happening soon. When we are not outside grilling (which is my favorite) I like to make summer salads for dinner. There is nothing better to me than a fresh grilled chicken salad, loaded with lettuce or spinach and some type of fruit. This Strawberry Chicken and Spinach Pasta Salad is definitely on my TOP 5 favorite salads, and apparently it’s on my family’s too. They request it for dinner all the time. 🙂
This Strawberry Chicken Salad and Spinach Pasta salad is a rock star and packed with flavor! It’s full of seasoned grilled chicken, soft penne pasta, sweet strawberries and my favorite salad dressing on earth. It’s a combination of creamy poppy seed and raspberry vinaigrette. It is THE BEST! 
Strawberry Chicken and Spinach Pasta Salad I love that my family adores this one too. It’s loaded with vitamins and protein from the strawberries, spinach and grilled chicken. When my family wants healthy dinners it makes me a happy Momma. 😀 It’s just a big bonus that it’s delicious too!
