I love a good salad. We have this at our cafe and it’s one of my favorite items on our menu. Lots of fresh ingredients with balsamic dressing and crumbled feta cheese.
Yield: 2 salads
Note– to make this vegan substitute chickpeas and any plant-based cheese you like
1 head green leaf lettuce
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 cooked chicken breast
1 English cucumber
1/4 red onion
1/4 cup green olives
Wash all produce.
Dice/ chop lettuce into bite-size pieces. Slice the olives in half.
Thinly slice the red onion, dice the tomato, and slice the cucumber into rounds.
In a medium bowl add the lettuce, onion, cucumber, olives, and tomato.
For the chicken, you can use ready-cooked frozen and thaw. I like to cook a whole sheet pan of chicken at the beginning of the week and use it for meals to save time. In a single layer of a sheet pan, add chicken, lightly pepper, and salt, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake in the oven @ 375 for 45 minutes or until the chicken has an internal temperature of 165*F.
Dice the chicken breast and add to the salad. Toss all ingredients with the dressing and top with feta cheese.
