Perfect for a light weeknight supper or weekday lunch. Hit your farmer’s market for the freshest greens possible to showcase this salad’s delicate flavors. Tarragon, Dijon mustard, and honey marry well in the dressing and partners beautifully with sweet strawberries and earthy goat cheese. The vinaigrette can be made several days in advance – just bring to room temperature and whisk before serving. Plan to make extra to drizzle over cooked vegetables or simple side salads later in the week. You can use rotisserie chicken, or any leftover chicken stashed in fridge. This tasty salad would also be equally delicious with grilled or roasted pork tenderloin.
