Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Salad with Creamy Yogurt Dressing

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Salad with Creamy Yogurt Dressing

This grilled chicken salad recipe has crumbled feta, olives, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion just like a lot of the “take-out” Greek salads from pizza places and take-out restaurants. A traditional Greek salad doesn’t use creamy dressing , it uses raw extra virgin olive oil. Also, lettuce is excluded and it is made up of big rustic pieces of tomato, cucumber, onion and a huge slice of feta, instead of crumbled.

You can make a creamy, rich tasting dressing that’s much healthier for you! Thick Greek yogurt whisked together with extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs combine into a creamy dressing that makes this grilled chicken salad recipe superb!


COOK TIME: 15 mins

TOTAL TIME: 15 mins




For the Dressing:

1/4 cup Greek yogurt

1 lemon juice

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp dried mint

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

For the Salad:

2 chicken breasts, drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper

2 cups Spring mix

1 medium tomato, cut in wedges

1 English cucumber, sliced

1 avocado, pit removed and sliced

1/4 red onion, sliced

1/2 cup kalamata olives

1/2 cup marinated artichokes

1/2 cup roasted red peppers, sliced into thin strips

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese



⭐Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Once the grill is hot, grill the chicken breasts directly over the heat. After 5 minutes, flip them once and don’t press down on it, you will lose the juices. Depending on how thick your chicken breast is it may take 10 minutes, or up to 15. Slice chicken into desired size for salad.

⭐In a small bowl, add yogurt, lemon juice, and dried herbs. Slowly drizzle in the extra virgin olive oil and whisk until fully incorporated. Thin it out with more lemon juice/oil if too thick.

⭐To a salad bowl, add spring mix. Arrange all other ingredients in a circle around the lettuce. Sprinkle with crumbled feta. Drizzle lots of dressing on the salad and enjoy!
