I was searching for something lite, and stumbled upon this Mediterranean Chicken Kebab Salad from Skinny Taste. I love it and hope you do too!

Marinated chunks of grilled chicken breast served over a bed of lettuce with feta, fresh diced tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, black olives, red onions, parsley and dill tossed in olive oil and fresh lemon juice.

The fresh flavors of the lemon, a hint of dill, cucumbers, tomatoes with the grilled chicken makes a wonderful main dish salad, perfect for lunch or dinner. If you want to make it more substantial you could serve it in a pita.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes

For the marinade:

  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic, crushed
  • kosher salt to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

For the salad:

  • 1 1/4 cups cucumber, peeled
  • 1 1/4 cups diced tomato
  • 1/4 cup diced bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup black olives
  • 1 1/2 tsp vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh dillweed
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley
  • 1/8 tsp dried oregano
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, grated
  • lemon wedges for serving
Directions:
 
Marinate the chicken at least 2-3 hours or overnight. If using wooden skewers, soak in water at least 30 minutes if grilling outdoors.
 
Combine the first 12 salad ingredients (cucumbers through salt and black pepper, not the lettuce) and set aside in the refrigerator to let the flavors set.
 
Thread chicken on 4 skewers and cook on a hot grill (indoor or outdoor grill) until chicken is cooked though, about 10-12 minutes.
 
Divide lettuce between four plates, top with tomato-cucumber salad, fresh grated feta cheese and grilled chicken. Serve with lemon wedges.
