Copycat Culver’s Strawberry Fields Salad

I don’t like stopping at fast-food restaurants so much. ¬†Usually, I find that the food contains a lot of calories for just a little satisfaction. ¬† When my family is traveling, we might stop at a fast-food restaurant. ¬†I usually¬†try¬†to get something healthier, like a salad or a grilled chicken sandwich. ¬† But then, I typically end up with a piece of chicken that tastes just like sodium.

One exception for me is Culvers. ¬†I love the grilled chicken sandwiches at Culver’s, and I love their salads. A lot.

But when I am home in Cedar Falls.  Do I need to pay $6.00 for one salad?   Instead, I can buy the ingredients, and make several Strawberry Fields salads!

You can use any chicken you have around on this salad.  I have been into keeping rotisserie chickens in the fridge for salads and sandwiches.  You can also grill some chicken breasts and keep them in the refrigerator.

I love keeping fancy salad toppings around.   I find that adding fruit, nuts, and cheese to a salad makes a salad into a meal.   I love this salad.  I have been really into making salads out of Romain lettuce lately.  I like how Romain lettuce has a nice crunch to it.

I almost always choose the honey-mustard salad dressing when I order salads at Culvers. ¬† I will include my recipe for my homemade honey-mustard too. ¬† If you don’t like honey-mustard, this salad would also taste fantastic with poppyseed dressing.
