Recipe

This healthy Grilled Chicken Greek Salad is the perfect light and healthy dinner or lunch.

The secret to the perfect Greek salad in my opinion is pepperoncinis. Their salty, acidic, slightly spicy flavor are that extra thing that takes a typical Greek salad and makes it something special. Now don't get me wrong, the feta and olives and crunchy veggies are also critical, but I find the pepperoncini is most commonly left out and what makes a Greek salad delicious.

Now speaking of Greek salads, they used to be my go-to healthy choice when dining out but unfortunately restaurant versions packed with feta cheese and high fat dressing can easily clock in at 800-1000 calories. Not the best option when you think you are making a healthy choice. For that reason, I usually prefer to make my own version at home where I have full control over the ingredients, portion size, and amount of dressing. This recipe has all the classic flavors - feta, olives, pepperoncinis, tomatoes, and cucumbers - but is made with a lighter dressing and some grilled chicken breasts or thighs for protein.
