How To Make Lemon Herb Mediterranean Chicken Salad
This colorful Mediterranean chicken salad is overflowing with olives, tomatoes, and cucumbers, and topped with a herby lemon dressing, for a tangy meal!
Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, water, red wine vinegar, parsley, basil, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a large jug.
Pour out half of the marinade into a large, shallow dish. Refrigerate the remaining marinade to use as the dressing later.
Add the chicken to the marinade in the bowl, then marinate chicken for 15 to 30 minutes or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator, if time allows.
Add the lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, avocado, and olives in a large salad bowl, and mix.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a grill pan or a grill plate over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken on both sides until browned and completely cooked through.
Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes, then slice and arrange over the salad.
Drizzle salad with the remaining untouched dressing.
Serve with lemon wedges, and enjoy!
