Ready Time

45 mins

Yields

8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced
  • 1 cup Kalamata olives, pitted
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Grill the chicken for 5-7 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Let it rest for a few minutes before slicing into thin strips. In a large bowl, combine the mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, olives, feta cheese, and red onion.

In a small bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to make the dressing.

Once the chicken has cooled slightly, slice it into thin strips and add it to the bowl with the mixed greens. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to combine.

Serve immediately.

Notes

For a crisper grilled chicken, make sure to pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels before grilling to remove excess moisture.

If using a gas grill, reduce heat to medium after preheating to prevent burning the outside before cooking through.

For charcoal grills, adjust vents to maintain medium-high heat.

For easier slicing, let the grilled chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing into thin strips.

To prevent soggy greens, prepare the salad components just before assembling the salad.

To make ahead, prepare the dressing up to a day in advance, storing it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

For a lighter dressing, reduce the amount of olive oil to 1 tablespoon and increase the red wine vinegar to 1/2 cup.

This salad can be easily customized to suit your taste – feel free to add or substitute other ingredients like artichoke hearts, grilled red peppers, or chopped bell peppers!
