Greek Chicken Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing
Greek Chicken Salad
I marinated this chicken in quite possibly one of my favorite marinades. It’s a combination of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, smoked paprika (which is not really Greek…but it’s good), fresh oregano, shallots (the secret!), garlic, and lots of lemon (always so much lemon). Now, when I say marinate, I really just mean toss the chicken in this mix and let it sit while you get everything else for the bowls together. I’m not sure about you guys, but I can never plan ahead enough to cook a recipe requiring a long marinating time.
It almost never happens…
So, I do a quick marinate. It works.
While the Greek Chicken is Marinating, Toss the Salad.
For the salad, you can surely use a mixture of something salad-like ingredients you adore maximum. but you ought to start with a base of chopped romaine. you may upload some Tuscan kale or arugula if you’d like. but I think you need at the least a bit romaine for a pleasant refreshing crunch.
And for my toss-ins, I, of path, used my favored Greek or Greek(lish) ingredients… chickpeas, kalamata olives, cucumbers, plenty of fresh cherry tomatoes, and masses of sparkling basil and dill.
Oh, after which avocado too.
And feta cheese. a lot Feta Cheese.
Onto the vinaigrette, I went with something a little unique. I made a creamy lemon tahini French dressing the usage of tahini, honey, mustard, and vinegar. This makes for a further creamy, and tangy French dressing. It’s turn out to be one among my cross-to vinaigrettes for weeknight salads.
once the salad is tossed and the French dressing is put together, make the chicken. you can pan-sear it or grill it, however I simply did a short pan sear. either option is splendid!
Now, toss everything collectively in a large salad bowl, and dinner (or lunch) is accomplished. Love a massive dinner style salad, specifically this time of yr.
