How to Make Keto Avocado Chicken Salad With Blueberries

In a small bowl, add dressing ingredients and whisk well. Set aside.

Add chicken to a gallon-sized freezer bag. Add half of the dressing and reserve the remaining sauce for the salad.

Shake the bag to coat the chicken well. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Once marinating is complete, grill chicken on your grill (you can also bake it if you do not have a grill). Make sure the chicken is thoroughly cooked and set aside.

Keep warm but allow the chicken to rest for 10-20 minutes before slicing.

Sliced Chicken

In a large salad bowl, add greens, blue cheese, walnuts, red onion, avocados, blueberries, and chicken.

Can I Use a Rotisserie chicken?

Most definitely! In that case, you can just mix everything all together with the dressing! No need to split it up for a marinade. Just prep, mix, and toss!

What to Eat with a Keto Avocado Chicken Salad

Normally I have an entire list of sides and things to eat with different recipes, but for this one? You don’t need anything! This is a complete meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner!

The only thing that you can add to it would be some delicious keto pita bread and make a wrap. I’ve done that and it is delicious!

Can I Make This Keto Chicken Salad Ahead of Time?

If you want to make this salad ahead of time, let me give a few tips!

I would not assemble the salad ahead of time. Wait until you are ready to serve in order the keep the greens nice and crisp and fresh.

What you CAN do is to prep the veggies, make the chicken, and make the dressing. Keep them all separate until it is time to serve. At that point, I would cut the avocado and then assemble it all!

Can I Use Other Fruits or Veggies?

You sure can! This keto avocado chicken salad is so easy to modify! You can swap out the fruits with other fruits, add veggies, swap out the nuts, you name it!

Sometimes I’ll use pecans and other kinds of berries too.
