Paleo Chicken, Berry & Nectarine Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette

Summertime is the perfect time to add fresh fruit to your salad greens and bring it all together with a light and fruity vinaigrette. 

This simple paleo salad recipe includes strawberries, blackberries and nectarines – but you can create your own combination of greens and fruit from whatever you have available locally.

I made a really simple paleo strawberry vinaigrette to go with this one, but depending on the salad mix you come up with, you might want to top yours with a honey lime or balsamic vinaigrette instead. [av_sidebar widget_area=’Lockerdome’ av_uid=’av-1yb13k’]

Yield: Serves about 4

Chicken, Berry & Nectarine Salad w/Strawberry Vinaigrette


  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 2 nectarines – cut into pieces
  • 1 or 2 avocados
  • 8 slices cooked bacon
  • 2-4 chicken breasts (depending on how much you like in your salad)
  • Salad greens – whatever kind you like. I used mixed greens
  • Vinaigrette
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 tbs coconut vinegar (you can use apple cider if you don't have coconut vinegar)
  • 2 tbs raw honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Combine berries, coconut vinegar, raw honey and salt and pepper in a blender. Next slowly add olive oil on a lower speed
  2. Stop and taste the mixture – you may want to add more honey or vinegar depending on your own personal taste
  3. Store in refrigerator until you're ready to serve your salad
  4. Salad
  5. Grill your chicken. I used my maple/mustard recipe to brush on the chicken which is awesome with this. Or you can use any kind of flavor you want
  6. Cook your bacon and crumble into bacon bits.
  7. Get your salad together with the greens, chicken, strawberries, blackberries and nectarines.
  8. Top with avocado, bacon and the yummy strawberry vinaigrette!
