  • 6 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice (see Tip)
  • ⅓ cup chopped red onion
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill, divided
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • Lemon wedges for serving (optional)

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower, onion and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in ¼ cup dill.
  3. Meanwhile, rub 1 teaspoon oil all over chicken. Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Grill, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast reads 165°F, about 15 minutes total. Slice crosswise.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 4 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, oregano and the remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  5. Divide the cauliflower rice between 4 bowls. Top with the chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and feta. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup dill. Drizzle with the vinaigrette. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
  • Tip: Look for prepared cauliflower rice (or cauliflower crumbles) with other prepared vegetables in some supermarkets. To make your own, place cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until broken down into rice-size granules. One 2-pound head of cauliflower yields about 4 cups of cauliflower rice.

Very easy to make, I thought it had good flavor. I bought already riced cauliflower frozen at Costco.

Easy to make and I riced my own cauliflower. Needs more flavor, just not sure what. I'll try a few different variations and let you know. Maybe a Greek salad dressing next time.
