STRAWBERRY SALAD WITH CREAMY MISO DRESSING

We previously had a neighborhood restaurant with the tastiest of strawberry chicken salads. It was a popular spot for families, and also a favorite place to gather with the girls. Then they not only moved (about 6 minutes away 😉 they removed this delectable strawberry salad with creamy miso dressing from their menu. So I tried to recreate it myself. The addition of chicken on top is optional.
