Healthy Dinner Idea: Cajun Chicken Strip Salad (THM, Real Food)

I need simple meals to stay on track with healthy eating which means I often eat salad as a meal or as a side with a meal.

Salads are so simple to throw together and you can customize what goes in your salad to your tastes. Topping a salad with my favorite Cajun Chicken Strips is a super easy way to get a healthy dinner on the table fast, especially since I often have some already cooked up in the freezer.
