WW Recipe of the Day: Skinny Grilled Chicken Greek Salad
(235 calories | 6 4 4 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
I'm in love with Greek Salad. I can't seem to help myself. There's something about the crisp romaine, colorful vegetables, salty olives, and pungent feta tossed with tangy lemon dressing that make my taste buds smile. And by adding a portion of WW friendly zero points grilled chicken breast is makes for a satisfying meal.
Grilled Chicken Greek Salad is one of my favorite summertime lunch or dinner options.
It's loaded with good-for-you ingredients: crunchy romaine lettuce, cucumbers, red onion, tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, and if you are really lucky - a pickled pepperoncini or two.
The Skinny on Grilled Chicken Greek Salad
Unfortunately, the grilled chicken Greek salads served in a lot of restaurants can also be loaded with fat and calories thanks to a heavy hand with high-fat dressing and cheese.
The good news is that it's really easy to make a light and tasty Greek Chicken Salad in your own kitchen.

Grilled chicken Greek salax
Don't know why people are using romaine in their Greek Salad. It should be head lettuce. Romaine takes away the flavor. If you go to a greek restaurant you will never get it served on romaine.
Going to try this but with head lettuce. Sure sounds good!
This is the best
Excellent salad that came together easily. Perfect for my lunch today.
