Chopped Greek Salad with Chicken


Chopped Greek Salad with Chicken

We eat a lot of salads in our house, so I am always trying to find quick, easy, and delicious combinations to try.  This chopped Greek salad with chicken was a tasty lunch last weekend.  It is an item on my Positively Kid Friendly Menu 3; however, I need to take it off that menu since one child said, “I don’t like olives!” and the other said, “I don’t like feta cheese!” Hmmm… the older children have a more sophisticated palate.

The kids did eat it, they just picked a bit around the ingredients that they did not like. This salad is double fast if you have leftover chicken in the house.  I used chicken from a rotisserie chicken.  I also served a slice of pita bread along side the salad. It was delicious!

  • 1/3 cup red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe black olives
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Whisk vinegar, oil, oreano, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Add lettuce, chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, olives and feta; toss to coat.
