If you’re like me, you’re spending alllll the money on fresh berries at the farmers market. They’re so good this time of year, and I can’t get enough.

I’m using them in so many recipes, like my chicken with berry salsa, coconut whipped cream topped with blueberries + salted honey, blueberry banana muffins and on top of my almond pulp breakfast porridge.

Whole30 + Keto Balsamic Chicken Berry Salad

One of my favorite ways to use summer berries is on top of this gorgeous, springy salad that is packed with all of my favorite things. Thank goodness berries are keto friendly!

Along with berries I love adding in avocado for creaminess and better fat macros, and some roasted pecans for crunch.

The chicken in this salad is particularly good. To give it tons of flavor, I marinate it in a balsamic mixture.

I love grilling it on the BBQ so it feels extra springy and summery, but include directions for the stove top or oven if that’s easier for you.

Ingredients

Balsamic Chicken Marinade

Balsamic Dressing

Salad

  • 6 cups organic mixed baby greens
  • 1/4 cup organic strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup organic blueberries
  • 1/4 cup organic raspberries
  • 3/4 cup roasted pecans
  • 2 avocados, sliced

Instructions

Balsamic Chicken

  1. In a ziptop bag, make the marinade by adding the balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, garlic and chicken. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or up to 1 day.
  2. Cook the chicken by either grilling on your BBQ (high heat for about 7 minutes per side), searing on your cast iron skillet in olive oil (medium heat for about 7 minutes per side), or roasting in your oven on a baking sheet (425ºF for about 15 minutes). The chicken is fully cooked when it has an internal temperature of 165ºF.
  3. Rest the chicken for 10 minutes, then slice into bite size pieces.

  2. On top of the salad dressing, add the mixed baby greens, and toss to coat the lettuce. Top with the strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, pecans, avocado and balsamic chicken. Toss, serve and enjoy!

Notes

Salad Greens: I love using baby greens, but you could use spinach, arugula, or whatever lettuce you have.
