Vegan Chicken & Strawberry Caprese Salad

April 30, 2020
If you were looking for a new salad idea, look no further! This unique Caprese is the perfect salad for spring. Strawberries are starting to come into season again so we better utilize them while we have them. Add some crispy apple, and you get a certain bite to the salad that you can't miss—not to mention the crunch from the pecans and crispy onions. I like to drizzle the Panera brand balsamic vinegar on top for the ultimate kick of flavor. Sometimes I'll even add my favorite vegan cheese or make a walnut parmesan to sprinkle on top. Whatever finishing touch you use, this salad is sure to fill you up and give you that boost of energy you need in the middle of the day.
