Here are 24 Beat-the-Heat Low-Carb Chicken Salads that can help you keep your kitchen cool, especially if you use leftover chicken!
Today I share Low carb chicken saladAnd this compilation of cold chicken salad recipes has some definitely my favorite things in my house. And over 24 delicious salad ideas are here to help when it’s too hot outside and you want nothing but cold food! Leftover roast chicken is an ingredient that often inspires me to make new salads and now I like to buy the already cooked and chopped rotisserie breast that comes in a package at Costco, which makes this salad even easier.
All of these salads are easy enough that you can make them on a hot summer day when you don’t really want to cook! I’ve updated the post with some awesome chicken salads I made recently; I hope you enjoy trying at least a few of the delicious salads! And try to stay calm if you’re in the US!
Tips for a delicious low-carb chicken salad:
- If you shop at Costco, look for packages of grilled, cooked and already chopped chicken to make preparing chicken salad even easier!
- If you have time, soaking the shredded chicken in the sauce for 20-30 minutes before tossing the salad together will add flavor to your chicken salads.
- Each type of chicken salad can be kept in the fridge for a few days, but for the best flavor, I like to have a little extra dressing to stir it in to refresh the flavors when I eat leftovers.
