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!
