Use your leftover cooked chicken breast in this recipe. If you don’t have chicken leftover from your summer grilling adventures, leftover rotisserie chicken works too. 

If you don’t like balsamic dressing, try raspberry vinaigrette or another type of berry salad dressing to go on your berry salad. (Don’t forget you can get a printable recipe card at the end of the post!)

Notes

💭 Expert Tips from Dietitian Summer Yule

This is a level 2 recipe (transition or weight maintenance). If I wanted to lower the calories on this one, I would cut the amount of pecans in half (to ¼ cup, or 1T per salad). Another strategy would be to use fat-free feta. For higher energy, you could add a side of bread or crackers and use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. 
Most of the fruits we refer to as berries do fit well into low-carb plans. The downside to fresh berries is that they spoil easily and tend to be expensive.  
Take advantage of local fruit when it is in season. It will likely be fresher, and may save you some money as well.
