Greek Chicken Salad

Greek chicken salad

The already-grilled chicken contributes to the Greek flavor, while dried cherries add pops of sweetness.

This mayonnaise-less chicken salad gets its “dressing” from lemon juice, herbs, and feta cheese, which gets a little creamy – kind of like a light mayo – when you toss everything together.

Ingredients: 

Juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano
1 teaspoon minced fresh basil
¾ cup olive oil
¼ teaspoon kosher salt 
A couple of turns of freshly ground pepper
2 boneless, skinless grilled chicken breasts, cut into small cubes (about 4 cups)
2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
¼ cup dried cherries
¼ cup finely crumbled feta
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Recipe directions: 

In a small bowl, stir the lemon juice, oregano, and basil together. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the chicken, parsley, cherries, feta, and walnuts (easiest done with clean hands). Pour the dressing over and toss again.
