Arrange salad greens on 4 plates then add chicken strips, red pepper, and grapefruit sections. Garnish with scallions. Serve with dressing of your choice.
A delightful combination of colorful tropical fresh fruit and raspberries take homemade shortcakes beyond the usual strawberries. For an extra kick of tropical flavor, sprinkle with chopped macadamia nuts.
