Mediterranean Chicken Salad

Mediterranean Chicken Salad

The Mediterranean version of chicken salad, which combines feta cheese, cucumbers, roasted red peppers, and black olives with Greek yogurt and dill dressing, is a tasty and simple take on the classic dish.

Is chicken salad freezer-friendly?

It’s not the best idea to freeze chicken salad because of the yogurt and mayo. When defrosted, the mayo will separate and take on an odd texture. Rather, simply freeze the chicken by itself. After that, refrigerate it overnight to defrost. Make a new batch of chicken salad with that.

Recipe Suggestions and Adaptations

As soon as you begin preparing chicken salad, you’ll want to try out all the different flavour combinations. These are some suggestions that go particularly nicely with this salad of Mediterranean chicken.

  • For an added crunch, try adding chopped pistachios, almonds, or walnuts.
  • Use dried cranberries, dates, or apricots to add some sweetness. It tastes even better with fresh fruit, like as grapes or apples.
  • Chopped jalapeño or pepperoncini peppers can add some spiciness.
  • Try varying the kinds of olives you use to alter their flavour. Green olives are softer in flavour, whereas kalamata olives elevate it to a Greek level.
    Add some capers for a salty touch. 
  • Try adding some rosemary or thyme if you enjoy using fresh herbs.
  • provide some chickpeas to provide some fibre.
