Greek Chicken Chopped Salad

A carb free clean chicken chopped salad marinated with bold Greek flavors, balanced with creaminess of feta, sweetness of grapes and spicy peperonicini peppers!

Honestly, this is a kind of salad my family can enjoy two times a day... two days in a row.... no questions asked. Hands down, this clean salad makes me drool every time I plan to make some.... Loaded with healthy-dose of (lots and lots) chopped veggies, topped with salty feta, garlic-oregano marinated zesty chicken, and sweetness of grapes to bring those sweet-savor notes........ what not to like?!

Chopped salads are my special favorite for the easy of eating green without struggling with the stems. you know what I mean ;) So, whenever I pack salads for lunch... I always try to spend extra 5 minutes and chop everything, greens and rest of veggies evenly for decent-bite-size a.k.a fork-size chops. This little extra spent time makes life much easier (and less messy) when eating in office. ;)

Greek Chicken Chopped salad first appeared in Salad Every Day Cookbook. I clearly remember when I planned to test this recipe, we had Greek chicken salad day and night for at-least a week. I made atleast 4 batches of chicken and vinaigrette until I got the balance of flavors. Oh,that reminds me that this chicken recipe is perfect to cook and freeze some chicken for weekdays salads or pita-tacos. I happen to freeze a lot of leftover greek chicken when I was testing this recipe and it was real delight whenever I used it later.

An important flavor component of this greek salad is sweetness of grapes. Honestly, you can skip greens in this salad but please don't skip seedless grapes. All Greek flavors can be pretty sharp at times... so sweetness of grapes makes this salad looking-forward-to-every-next-bite kinda delicious!

You can replace greens in this salad with darker leaf greens too. Like sometimes, I replace lettuce with chopped kale mix or generous addition of baby spinach. Just in case you not looking to eat chicken, the same marinade works perfect with firm pressed tofu or even chickpeas. After 15-30 minute marination, pan fry tofu or chickpeas until golden crispy, then top on salad as you would chicken. I promise you, even the vegetarian version of this chopped salad is very satisfying, of course healthy and packed with ton of flavor.

I hope you all are set to watch games and enjoy time with friends and family?!

Wish you all a great SuperBowl weekend. Happy to see you around! -Savita
