Everyday Greek Salad

Everyday Greek Salad

Print Recipe
My Everyday Greek Salad consists of chopped tender baby lettuces, sliced cucumber, red onion, cherry tomato halves, sweet pickled beets, chickpeas and greek olives. All of this is then topped with tender juicy chicken, lots of crumbled feta and homemade greek dressing! This recipe (generously) serves 1 but can easily be adjusted to serve more or less.
