Good-for-you Grilled Leftovers

Got a fridge full of July 4th leftovers? Don't let those charbroiled hamburgers, grilled steaks, chicken, and fish go to waste. Here are some of our favorite, healthy ways to use up the remains of yesterday's festivities.

Fish – Shred a cooked tuna steak and whip up this avocado tuna salad (pictured) or substitute grilled salmon for smoked in this delicious, veggie-filled salmon wrap.

Chicken Breasts – Try this drool-worthy chicken salad or these tasty Asian lettuce wraps.

Steaks – Slice thin and add greens and fresh pineapple to make this delicious salad.

Burgers – Crumble beef or turkey burgers into a pot of homemade veggie chili or reheat with some taco seasoning for taco night. Top with leftover grilled veggies, fresh avocado, cilantro, and plain Greek yogurt.

Enjoy those leftovers, and have a great weekend!
