When summer heat sets in, you’ve got to get creative to stay out of the kitchen. Fortunately, with seasonal produce in abundance you’ve got lots of options. I use rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to make this outrageously delicious spinach salad. With sweet strawberries, crunchy pecans and tangy blue cheese, you don’t feel like you’re missing out on a delicious meal by having salad for dinner. Plus it makes an easy and beautiful dish when you’re entertaining. Try it with our Chilled Cucumber Soup!
