Beat-the-Heat Low-Carb Chicken Salads to Make from Rotisserie Chicken is certainly timely for me because Utah has already had lots of hot, hot, hot days this year, with probably more to come. I love salads all year round, but when it’s hot outside a cool salad is absolutely the perfect lunch, and I’ve posted hundreds of salad recipes on Kalyn’s Kitchen through the years.
Leftover rotisserie chicken is an ingredient that often inspires me to create new salads, and many of these 20 Low-Carb Chicken Salads are favorite salads I make over and over during the summer. And these salads are easy enough you can even make them on a hot summer day when you don’t really want to cook!
I updated this collection of Beat-the-Heat Low-Carb Chicken Salads with a few salads that I’ve enjoyed recently, and I’m sharing it for this week’s Recipe Round-Up, where I share things on Friday that you might want to make over the weekend. And it’s Thursday night, not Friday, but tomorrow I’m leaving my house at 5:00 A.M. to save spots for the Handcart Days Parade that members of my family have attended for more years than we can even count. So I hope no one minds if we get this party started a little early!
Tips for Tasty Low-Carb Chicken Salad:
- If you shop at Costco, look for their already cooked-and cut-up packages of rotisserie chicken to make chicken salad prep even easier!
- If you have time, marinating the cut-up chicken in dressing for 20-30 minutes before you stir the salad together will add flavor to chicken salads.
- Most every type of chicken salad can keep in the fridge for a few days, but for best flavor I like to have a little extra dressing to stir in to refresh the flavors in leftover chicken salad.
