Easy to prepare salad, I added some cucumber, carrot, black olives and a dash of Tabasco. It was filling and satisfying. Would definitely serve this again. Even my 'meat and potato' husband liked it.
Chopped Greek Salad with Chicken for Two
From EatingWell: July/August 2009
Have a warm-weather supper on the table quickly with this Greek-inspired chicken salad. Feel free to substitute other chopped fresh vegetables, such as broccoli or bell peppers, for the tomatoes or cucumber. Use leftover chicken, store-roasted chicken or quickly poach a couple boneless, skinless chicken breasts while you prepare the rest of the salad. Serve with pita bread and hummus.

The salad easily accommodates additions or changes according to the maker's personal taste. We usually add just a little less red onion, substitute minced garlic for the garlic powder, and use chicken thighs in preference to chicken breast (the recipe doesn't specifically call for either). Dressing is super-simple. Some may not like that there's a touch more chopping involved than other quick recipes, but it's not that extensive, either. Fairly quick prep, and if you have leftover chicken, that just makes things even simpler.
I only had tomatoes, broccoli, and green peppers, so I added that instead of the cucumbers. It was great. It made a whole meal for my husband and I. I love feta cheese so I added that to my salad, but my husband does not, so he omitted it from his. Each to his own I guess. It was very good either way. I NEVER use salt in any recipe and used a "real" garlic, rather than the powerdered kind.
I thought this was very good, and filling. My friend really liked it, too. I served it with whole wheat pita chips. There is quite a bit of chopping to do, though. I didn't feel there was enough dressing, so I made more, and let each person add more according to their personal taste.
