Now for the main event, Greek Grilled Chicken Salad! I was inspired by one of the recipes in the salad dressing booklet and put my own spin on it. Doesn't it look gorgeous. So light, healthy and with wonderful flavors tapping on all of your taste buds.
1 bag (16 oz.) broccoli and cauliflower florets
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, seasoned, grilled and thinly sliced.
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup roasted red bell peppers, diced (if using jarred, use the kind packed in water)
2 tablespoons Kalamata olives, pitted and quartered
Kosher salt and black pepper
1/2 cup Girard's Greek Feta Vinaigrette
Place the broccoli and cauliflower florets in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the florets on a pre-heated grill pan and grill until slightly browned.
Remove from grill and place in a serving bowl. Add the sliced grilled chicken to the bowl and pour Girard's Greek Feta Vinaigrette. Toss to coat evenly then add the roasted red peppers and the Kalamata olives. Toss again to thoroughly combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
We enjoyed this warm, but this lovely meal can be enjoyed chilled also.
We ate this for lunch yesterday and I can't wait to enjoy this again for lunch today and make my co-workers jealous.
