Mixed Greens and Strawberry Salad with Chicken, Goat Cheese and Avocado

I have so much lettuce and arugula growing right now I’m searching for new and delicious salad recipes.  I love this salad – it is light and perfect for a main meal!  The dressing takes it over the top.  Even if you don’t like goat cheese, another cheese would work just as well.  Enjoy!
