My Big Healthy Greek Salad

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Whoever said that healthy food can’t also be delicious evidently never discovered the many wonders of Greek cuisine. This salad, while following no traditional recipe, involves many Greek flavors and food to make a healthy and mouth-watering salad.  Pictured here with fresh, home-made flat bread with garden herbs. Bread recipe is not included, but was served with olive oil and herbs.

I. What’s in it?

– Fresh spinach (chopped)

– Spiced olives (pepper spice to flavor), pitted and assorted

– Off-the-vine tomatoes (chopped)

– Cucumbers (sliced)

– Red pepper (chopped)

– Onion (chopped)

–  Chicken breast

– Balsamic vinegar

– Olive oil

– Tzatziki yogurt sauce

– Croutons (garlic and herb flavored)

– 1 Egg

– Feta cheese (crumbled)

II.  The preparation

1. To start the salad preparation, place croutons into a separate bowl with enough balsamic vinegar and olive oil to soak with. Leave these to marinate while following the rest of the procedure.

2. Cut up a breast of chicken into several small pieces and place into a separate bowl.  Mix in completely with one egg.  Add a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar.  Place the chicken with marinade into a frying pan with two teaspoons of olive oil. Set to medium heat.  Check regularly while performing subsequent procedures as to avoid burning the chicken.

3. Chop the spinach, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and red peppers and place into a large bowl.  Mix two tablespoons of the tzatziki yogurt sauce, as well as two tablespoons of the olive oil into the assortment. Add a few spoonfuls of balsamic vinegar (the amount comes down to personal preference).  Add the marinated croutons into the mix.

4. Combine the fully sautéed chicken with the rest of the ingredients and top with feta.  Serve immediately.

II Served with..

I served this with homemade, fresh-from-the-oven flat bread that had herbs baked into the top, along with olive oil and herb dipping oil.  I also had fresh grapes and pepper-spiced olives for appetizers.  Would be great with a glass of red wine. Served 6 people.
