Spring Recipe: Fruited Spring Salad with Chicken

This week in North Texas the temperatures feel more like summer than spring, but we are hoping we still have some of those perfect, breezy spring days ahead of us!

To channel this season’s vibe, for its spring recipe, the NTFB 营养服务 北德克萨斯食品银行的团队推荐这个 鸡肉水果沙拉. The combined prep and cook time is only 30 minutes and includes fresh and healthy ingredients. Plus, you can make your own strawberry vinaigrette dressing to top off this delicious spring meal.

Happy Spring!
