The elements of a classic Greek salad and a chicken souvlaki sandwich combine in this piquant dish. You can also use lamb in place of the chicken.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill or broiler.

Step 2

Combine 1 teaspoon garlic and the next 6 ingredients (1 teaspoon garlic through chicken breast) in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal the bag and shake to coat. Remove chicken from the bag. Grill or broil chicken 5 minutes on each side or until done. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces.

Step 3

Combine chicken, cubed cucumber, and the next 4 ingredients (cubed cucumber through tomatoes) in a large bowl. Combine yogurt and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over chicken mixture; toss well.

Good, easy recipe. Next time I will add dill to the sauce and more olives.

I thought this recipe was good, but I didn't love it. I think it is a good healthy recipe, but it was lacking flavor. I think the chicken was good, but the yogurt sauce was kind of bland. Also, it seemed like a lot of work for the end result. Not sure if I will make this again.

I absolutely love Greek salad and this recipe did not disappoint! I was thinking of adding a little dill/and or mint to the sauce, but it is perfect the way it is too. Yum!

Divine! I would make this again and again. Loved the Greek flavor - feta, kalamata, yogurt, cucumbers, and the great taste of the grilled chicken. A touch too much ground red pepper for my taste, but was balanced by scooping the salad up with pita. Surprised that no one else has noticed the error in this recipe - the "divided" bottled minced garlic. Has anyone figured out where the second teaspoon is supposed to go?

This salad was superb! The flavors were not bland at all (one of my fears). It transported me to Greece, I swear! I am watching my calories intakes so I ate it without any companion (pita or any type of bread) and for my surprise it was veeeery filling by itself, so no complaints there either, since the salad per se is very low calorie so it is the perfect lunch/dinner. I will be making this again for sure! :)

I love this recipe! If I'm in a time crunch, I susbtitute store bought tzatziki sauce. I also like to put the salad mix in a middle eastern pita for those hearty eating nights. Delicious!

I love this recipe. I follow everything exact, except I put the chicken Souvlaki in a pita or grilled tortilla. The chicken is moist and the flavors are fantastic!

My husband and I thought this dish was great! It would be great for a summer get together, nothing formal, just friends gathering for good eats. To decrease the "runny" quality to the dressing, use greek style yogurt. It's thicker and tangier... yum! Also, only add dressing on individual plates, instead of all at once. I do this for all salads in general, so the whole dish stays fresh and not soggy.
