A Deliciously Easy Mediterranean Chicken Salad
This weekend, we went out to a late breakfast/early lunch to celebrate my daughter starting kinder and my 40th birthday (eeeek!) and I had THE MOST amazing salad! In order to give some credit and props to the place I had it at, it's Eggs N' Things in Santa Clarita, CA. If you're ever in the area, it's a great place for a reasonable breakfast with lots of options. And obviously great salads too! I make salads often at home but, for some reason, I rarely deviate from the typical ingredients I use! Well this salad inspired me and I'm determined to start making it at home for myself and my family regularly. The recipe is super easy too! Use as much or as little of the ingredients as you'd like. The recipe below is for one large serving. Here it goes...
Mediterranean Chicken Salad
--2 cups spring mix
--1 cup of fresh spinach
--5 to 7 hearts of palm
--1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
--1 1/2 oz crumbled feta cheese
--5-10 Calamato olives
--2-3 slices of red onion
--4 oz grilled chicken (recipe for the chicken can be found here)
Place the spring mix and spinach in a shallow bowl. Add the other toppings on top and eat! Because of the strong taste of the feta, hearts of palm and sun dried tomatoes, it doesn't even require dressing. If you do prefer to have dressing with it, balsamic vinaigrette is perfect with it!
