Romaine,Kirby cucumber & strawberry salad

1 Romaine heart
4 large strawberries sliced
2 Kirby cucumbers sliced
1/2 c sliced red onions
3 slices of fresh made mozzarella halved (optional)


Tear or chop romaine leaves place in a salad bowl then layer all the other ingredients and set aside.


3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 warm water
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/3 c extra virgin olive oil 
Sea salt & Black pepper to taste

In a small bowl add all ingredients. Lastly, whisk the olive oil slowly but continuously until it emulsifies. Then drizzle over salad. Serve.

For those that do eat meat I sautéed a chicken strips and added it over my yummy salad. 


1 chicken breast sliced into strips
1/8 tsp Sea salt 
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp of olive oil

You may add more spices but I chosed to get lighter because it was going on top of my salad and the vinaigrette. 


Wash chicken in cool water, pat dry and slice into strips. 
In a medium bowl add chicken strips and all the spices then set aside. 

In skillet on medium high heat add oil then add the marinated chicken strips into the heated oil. Toss with wooden spoon cooking all sides of the strip, for about 4-7 minutes. Then remove from heat, let cool then serve over salad. 

Plate and serve.
