Botanically speaking, the beloved strawberry isn’t a berry at all. But it’s a favorite fruit for good reason: It’s delicious and high in fiber, folate, potassium, and manganese, with ounce-for-ounce more vitamin C than an orange! Strawberries are also 92% water, which can help you stay hydrated this summer. Look for firm, bright-red strawberries. Wash just before eating — if stored wet, strawberries spoil faster. Leftover chicken is great for this recipe. Or — if you’re short on time — use cooked chicken breast from the deli. This salad comes together quickly and is perfect for hot summer days.
