Strawberry Grape Chicken Salad

 I love nights when I have no idea what to make for dinner and I end up with something like this. Even better when it's all made out of leftovers from previous meals. The only prep I had to do was washing and cutting the fruits. We had this salad for dinner on Sunday. My fridge was full of leftovers from cooked meals and takeouts, so I decided not to make anything from scratch. I started pulling things from the fridge and by the time I was done I was pleased with the result. Have you ever thought of putting fresh fruits in your salad? well, now you don't have to think about it, you can just do it and thank me later.
