Description

This Greek Chicken Salad is a fun twist on the classic! A tzatziki-style dressing, loads of chicken, fresh dill, kalamata olives, cucumbers, and sprinkling of feta cheese makes this one something special.


Ingredients

Scale

For the Tzatziki-Style Dressing:

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt (I like 2%)
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • ¼ cup finely chopped cucumber
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh dill
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Chicken Salad:

  • 4 cups cooked and diced chicken breast
  • 1 English cucumber, diced
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives, halved
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese

For Serving:

  • Crusty bread or Bibb lettuce leaves
  • Microgreens
  • Tomatoes
  • Additional feta
  • Additional dill

Instructions

For the Dressing:

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the yogurt, mayo, cucumber, red onion, dill, lemon zest and juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Adjust the seasoning as needed.

For the Salad:

  1. To the dressing, add the diced chicken, cucumber, olives, red onion, and feta cheese. Mix until everything is well combined and evenly coated in the dressing.
  2. Season, to taste, with additional salt or pepper.
  3. Cover and refrigerate the chicken salad until you need it, or use it right away. The salad will keep in the fridge for a few days.

To Serve:

My favorite way to eat this is in lettuce cups or on a piece of toasted bread. I love sliced tomatoes, some microgreens or lettuce, and another sprinkling of feta and fresh dill just before serving.
