Greek salad

There is this restaurant by my house that is known for their Greek salads. They put a ton of chicken on them, grilled to perfection, and their house dressing is out of this world. All I know is that it's creamy, kind of pink (I think from beet juice?) and just delicious, but at $9 for a small salad, that is definitely an indulgence!

So today, I set out to make my own, and I was pretty happy with the results! (I wish I could say how much of each I used, but I didn't measure anything, so I'll just tell you what I put in it).

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breast seasoned with lemon juice, garlic powder and Greek seasoning
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatoes (I used the cherry tomatoes from my garden)
  • Red onion
  • Mild pepper rings
  • Feta cheese
  • Beets (I used the canned, which were okay, but not as firm as fresh would have been)
  • Ken's Steakhouse Greek salad dressing
Serve with a side of pita bread and you have got yourself a delicious, healthy and super filling salad!
