Mediterranean Chicken Kebab Salad

Marinated chunks of grilled chicken breast served over a bed of lettuce with feta, fresh diced tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, black olives, red onions, parsley and dill tossed in olive oil and fresh lemon juice.

 

Last week I got tickets to see the Dr. Oz Show live in the city, talk about a fun day! After, I had lunch with my friend at a Turkish restaurant and I fell in love with their Shepard’s salad. They served it with fresh grated feta on the side and fresh lemon, I don’t think I’ll have feta any other way now. I savored that salad and took notes so I wouldn’t forget it.

 

Today, I fell in love with it all over again.

 

The fresh flavors of the lemon, a hint of dill, cucumbers, tomatoes with the grilled chicken makes a wonderful main dish salad, perfect for lunch or dinner. If you want to make it more substantial you could serve it in a pita. I went with real feta, I’m not a fan of the chalky taste in reduced fat feta and a little goes a long way.

 

 

A wonderful high protein, low fat, low carb, low point, gluten-free main dish salad! To make this Paleo-friendly, leave the cheese out,
