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.

We've made this salad multiple times, and it is absolutely delicious. The yogurt dressing has a nice kick to it, and the flavors meld together perfectly. Serve with toasted pita bread or pita chips for some crunch!

This recipe has been a staple in our house for several years, it is delicious. I did reduce the red pepper, but you need just a little to give the dish a little "bite". I also add some Greek Seasoning as I'm putting the ingredients together. It adds a lot of flavor and and authentic Greek taste.

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

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!

I was disappointed considering all the excellent reviews. This is a quick meal, good for a casual family lunch or dinner. But I do not think it is special enough to serve to guests. The consistency of the dressing turned watery quickly which would made it visually unappealing.

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!

We loved this recipe! Wonderful for when the tomatoes & cucumbers are in abundant supply! We added extra olives b/c we like them, otherwise, stuck to the recipe....delicious & very fresh & flavorful! Will definitely make this again.

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.
