August’s RECIPE: mediterranean chicken salad

Let’s enjoy the final days of summer with this refreshing and flavorful Mediterranean Chicken Salad. Fresh, delicious and perfect for a warm weather meal, this grilled Mediterranean chicken salad is perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal. Seasoned chicken breast is quickly grilled and added to a healthy salad, before being drizzled with a zingy and tangy dressing.

you can swap out the chicken!

You can easily make this salad with other proteins like steak, shrimp or salmon. The recipe pretty much remains the same, but the cooking times will vary slightly depending on what you use. Tofu, plant-based chicken or chickpea bites would work great too for vegetarian options.

  1. I’m from Greece and I made your recipe .

    Yumna you are the best!!

    This salad reminds me of the Greek Summers full of taste.

    It’s juicy , refreshing and super filling !!!

    I made it with the marinated chicken .

    Waiting to make more of your recipes 🌹🌹🌹

  2. This Mediterranean chicken salad turned out to be SO DELICIOUS. I always loved feelgoodfoodie’s Fattoush salad but now I can’t decide which one I like more lol. Both are so good!

    1. I love Mediterranean salad, with a few twist for me, for example I added red bell pepper instead of tomatoes, because I don’t eat them, also I used salmon in place of chicken, it was so yummy!

      1. There are definitely a bunch of great ways to customize it to your liking! Love the idea of the salmon!!

  3. I love this type of refreshing salad in summertime. I’m curious how the vinegar will work to marinate the chicken and make it tender.

    1. Same here! When you leave the chicken in the marinade, the acid and tangy flavor of the vinegar helps to tenderize the meat and add flavor.
