Roast Chicken Greek Salad Recipe

Had some leftover roast chicken so decided to have a simple Sunday salad for dinner.

As I mentioned before, the boy and I don't usually eat much carbs so this is our main course hence the big bowl haha. Love the explosion of colours!

Because of the strong herbs and cheese used, I prepared something else for the little pumpkin to eat. Besides, she is a growing child and needs more carbs.


Prep time:
About 20 mins

Ingredients:
1/2 honey-roasted chicken (shredded)
2 butterheads
1 green (or red, yellow) capsicum (chunked)
2-3 medium purple onions (sliced)
1 cup pea sprouts
1/2 cup fresh mozzarella (sliced)
1/3 cup mixed nuts and dried fruits
1 bottle Emborg Feta in oil with Herbs & Olives

Method:
  1. Wash and cut the butterheads, onions, capsicum. Shred the chicken.
  2. Combine the vegetables and chicken in a large salad bowl
  3. Pour Emborg dressing over the vegetables and chicken
  4. Garnish with sliced mozzarella and mixed nuts & dried fruits
  5. Season to taste
  6. Ready to serve
That little Emborg bottle of feta marinated in olive oil and herbs makes preparing this Greek Salad so simple! It's my dressing and garnish all in one. If this salad was used as an appetizer, it could possibly serve 8. I added the nuts & dried fruits for extra crunch but you can do without..
