California Cobb Strawberry Salad with Lemon Pepper Chicken and Homemade Avocado Ranch Dressing

There is literally a foot of snow on the ground here in Salt Lake City, all fresh within the past 36 hours…it’s beautiful.

A Bright Salad is just as welcome at my house in December as it is in the Summer (especially with the name California!)
