Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Grilled Chicken Greek Salad
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.
Grilled Chicken Greek Salad is one of my favorite summertime lunch 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.
This one has just 235 calories and *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *6 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.
Following the new WW Freestyle Update, this is reduced to just *2 Freestyle SmartPoints.
It’s a great way to use leftover grilled chicken.
Or leave the chicken off for a delicious vegetarian lunch or dinner.

To make the salad dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, oregano and black pepper and set aside.
In a large bowl, toss together the lettuce, tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, onion and olives.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss until everything is well coated with dressing. Add the cheese and toss again.
Divide the salad among 4 salad plates or bowls and top with grilled chicken and pepperoncini.
