Grilled Chicken, Zucchini, and Berry Summer Salad

My mother in law brought me 6 huge home-grown zucchini that her neighbor gave her last weekend and used two of them for this recipe.


I am planning to use the others for this recipe (see below)!

Doesn’t it look amazing!?

 


It probably seems like a strange combination, but zucchini are so versatile, and I love the variation of roasted veggies in my salad. I used fresh cherries and blackberries, but you could swap out for other berries, or even peaches. I think the next time I make it I will roast the fruit to caramelize it a bit too! 🤤
This salad was so simple to throw together and was perfect for my lunch meal prep for the week. I put all my salad toppings for each day in my 6 pack fitness containers. I also use contains similar to these to carry servings of the Panera Poppyseed dressing (found at Publix). At work, I toss the toppings in the bowl with my salad greens and used my OXO salad chopper to dice it all up! Then toss in the dressing.
Ready for lunches!

Grilled Chicken, Zucchini, and Berry Summer Salad

5-6 servings
  • 20 oz package of Marketside Garlic and Herb chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
  • 2 medium zucchini, diced and cooked
  • 12 oz blackberries
  • 1 lb fresh cherries, pitted and halved
  • 3 bags of Baby Greens Salad (6 oz each)
  • 1 bottle of Panera Poppyseed dressing

If prepping for a meal for several people, divide greens onto plates and then equal parts of toppings on each. Drizzle with dressing, toss and enjoy.

If preparing for meal prep, divide toppings into tupperware or ziplock bag and portion out the dressing into containers (like I outlined above). If trying to keep the greens fresh all week, it can be helpful to open the bag, put a paper towel or two into the bag around the greens, and then roll them back up and rubber band them. This helps to keep them from wilting and spoiling over the course of 5 days.
