Summer Layered Chicken Salad

I ran across this recipe a while back and thought it looked good.  Hands down!  This is the BEST salad ever!  I want to eat it again and again.  It is that good!  The dressing is to die for and it goes just perfect with the crunchiness of the lettuce and pecans, plus the sweetness and juiciness of the chicken and strawberries.  The Gorgonzola cheese adds the final touch to a wonderful and delicious salad.  You have to make this one!  Enjoy!

For salad:
-1 head romaine lettuce, washed and torn into bite size pieces
-4 cups cooked chicken breast strips (not breaded)
-5 oz Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
-1 cup pecan halves
-3 cups fresh strawberries, cleaned and quartered
For dressing:
-1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
-2 Tbs sugar
-1/2 tsp salt
-3 Tbs red wine vinegar
-1 tsp Dijon mustard
-1 clove garlic, finely minced
In a large salad bowl, place half of the torn lettuce.  Layer with chicken, cheese, pecan, remaining lettuce and strawberries.
In a small bowl, mix all the dressing ingredients until well blended.  Pour dressing over salad just before serving.  Enjoy!
