Greek chicken salad

Greek salad

There are many things I love in this world. Two of those things are greek salad and chicken salad. Put them together? You’ve got one awesome combination. This is an easy recipe to make for lunches or for a quick dinner, and goes well on a sandwich or a bed of spinach.

The other great thing about this recipe is that it gets even better the second day once the herbs and flavors have a chance to sit. You can thank me later for introducing you to this recipe. 🙂
