Greek Chicken Salad

Greek Chicken Salad 

Please, please do not use a farmed salmon variety. It is environmentally destructive, the taste is abhorrent as is the overall nutritional content.

Makes 4 Servings | 15 Min. Prep | 15 Min. Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. Greek Seasoning 
  • 1 Lemon (juiced) 
  • 1/4 c. Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • 20 oz.  Chicken Breast (boneless, skinless) 
  • 3 c. Cherry Tomatoes (halved) 
  • 1 Cucumber (diced)
  • 1/4 c. Red onion (finely diced) 
  • 1 c. Pitted Kalamata Olives (chopped) 
  • 3 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar 
  • Sea Salt and pepper to taste

Tools:

  • spoon, kitchen knife and cutting board 
  • mixing bowl 
  • skillet 

Method:

  1. Combine the Greek seasoning, lemon juice, and 1/4 of the olive oil in a shallow bowl or ziploc bag. Add the chicken breasts and marinate for 20 minutes or overnight. 

  2. Preheat a grill or skillet over medium heat. Remove chicken from the marinade and cook for 10 to 15 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through. 

  3. While the chicken is cooking, make the salad by combining the cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, olives, balsamic vinegar, remaining olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

  4. Divide the salad and chicken between plates. Enjoy! 

Make it your own. I added some pesto to the shot above. Try incorporating roasted sweet potatoes into the salad for more carbs. Go crazy and sprinkle with a little feta cheese!
