Strawberry salad with caramelized almonds

In the summer I love to eat salads, especially ones with fresh fruit mixed in. This one has been on rotation all summer and is super simple to make. I used to buy already made caramelized almonds until I realized how easy it is to caramelize your own in a skillet with sugar and chopped up almonds. Stir them around until they are golden brown. Plus, what a difference it makes to pour warm almonds onto your salad!

Strawberry Almond Salad
Mixed Greens
Chopped celery
Shredded carrots
Crumbled blue cheese
Sliced strawberries
Caramelized almonds
Shredded chicken (optional)

Other variations could include diced grapes, blueberries, or mandarin oranges. 

For the dressing you could easily make your own, but I personally like to mix the Brianna's Poppyseed Dressing with the Blush Wine Vinaigrette Dressing.
