This Greek Grilled Chicken Salad is one of my all time favorite salads. It’s easy to make and is a crowd pleaser, always!


For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 23 cloves pressed or minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • pinch of dried thyme
  • big pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper

For the salad, any, some, or all of the following:

  • chopped romaine lettuce
  • chopped green and red peppers
  • chopped cucumbers
  • chopped tomatoes
  • sliced red onion
  • feta cheese, cubed or crumbled
  • peperoncini
  • kalamata olives
  • cooked and sliced grilled chicken (or shrimp), marinated in Greek Salad Dressing


For the dressing:

  1. Combine lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, thyme and salt and pepper in bowl.
  2. Using a whisk, slowly stream in olive oil and whisk into vinegar mixture. You will see it thicken up a bit (emulsifying) while combining.
  3. Store in a jar with a tight lid in the refrigerator after using. Always give the dressing jar a couple of shakes before serving. In my opinion, best at room temperature, so take it out a few minutes before using.

For the salad:

  1. Make it look as pretty or messy as you want to be. Layer it nicely on a plate for presentation or toss it all in a bowl and mix it up if that’s what you are in the mood for.
