Greek Goddess Salad!


Lately, my husband and I have been on a GREEK kick!  This past week we made Greek salads to bring for lunch every day with olives, feta, cucumbers, onions, grilled chicken and this really tasty Greek salad dressing by Primal Kitchens!  But I didn’t stop there!  I had to make a big batch for dinner because I knew my son would like it too!  
While our lunches were served over a bed of mixed greens, true Greek salad is not….well really an actual salad that we are used to per say.  This recipe did not include any greens just straight mini cucumbers, kalamata olives, sliced tomatoes, red onions, chunks of fresh feta and lot’s of fresh dill.

 

The chicken was marinaded overnight and I made my own Tzatziki sauce with plain yogurt and let that sit overnight as well to let all the flavors marry nicely together.  This was one of the most tastiest dishes!  This will become a regular in our dinner rotation for sure!  Great for the summer and easy to bring to a BBQ.

If you give it a try please share and let me know!
