Ingredients

FOR THE SALAD:

  • 2 chicken breasts halved, about 7oz/200g each
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach
  • 3-4 small cucumbers or 1/2 English cucumber chopped
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 1/3 cup pitted black olives sliced
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese

FOR THE GREEK DRESSING:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk all dressing ingredients together. Then pour the dressing into a jar or bottle and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Place the chicken on a plate and season with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and oregano. Rub well to coat on both sides.
  • Heat a grill pan or an outdoor grill on medium-high heat and grease it with a bit of olive oil. Cook the chicken for 5-7 minutes on each side or until cooked through and no longer pink on the inside. (If using a meat thermometer, the internal temperature has to reach 75C/165F). 
  • Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. 
  • In a large bowl or platter, add baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and olives. 
  • Place the sliced chicken over the veggies and top with crumbled feta cheese.
  • Pour the dressing over and gently toss to coat.
    Enjoy!
