Greek Salad with Chicken | Good Cheap Eats

I’ve said it before: I’m a salad girl. I love having salads as my main meal at lunch and as a regular side at dinner. They provide a great way to get all your veggies in a delicious, fresh way. If you haven’t already made a round of salads for your lunches this week, now is a great time to do it!

This Greek Salad with Chicken is so easy and so make-ahead, you’ll want to add it to your regular rotation of Awesomeness on a Plate. For years I’ve enjoyed my homemade Greek seasoning in a number of dishes. It adds a great punch to grilled meats, rice dishes, and salad dressings, particularly here in spicing up the chicken as well as the dressing.

I choose to top this salad with veggies that I traditionally associate with Greek fare: red onion, black or Kalamata olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, artichokes, and spinach. I’m not sure how long avocados have been available in Greece, but they work here, so let’s go with it.

I also toss on a bit of feta, because I like it, and it goes with the theme. I can’t remember when I first tasted feta cheese, but we became fast friends. It’s no wonder that a Greek salad is one of my favorites. It’s generally packed with great flavors, including but not limited to feta cheese. It’s tangy, saltiness is so so delicious; you don’t need a lot, just a little goes a long way. (If you’re going dairy-free for whatever reason, you can leave it off. Or try goat’s milk feta cheese if some dairy is okay.)

If you’re a salad lover, you’ll love this salad.
