  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh or dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 6 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices gluten-free bread, lightly toasted
  • 2 cups packed arugula
  • 1 (6-ounce) tomato, cut into 4 slices


1. Combine first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add chicken, onion, and cheese, tossing gently.

2. Place 1 toast slice on each of 4 plates. Top each with 1/2 cup arugula, 1 tomato slice, and about 1/2 cup chicken mixture.


Arugula has a peppery flavor that's more intense than that of most lettuces. It's highly perishable and will only last for a few days after purchase. Store it in the refrigerator inside a perforated plastic bag. Rinse thoroughly, and pat dry before using.
