Beti’s Reflections

 Picture this: I was strolling through the vibrant markets of Santorini, the air filled with the aroma of fresh produce and sizzling grilled meats. That’s when I stumbled upon this gem, a Mediterranean Chicken Salad Recipe that locals lovingly referred to as “Lean Lunch Luxe”. It was love at first bite, and I knew I had to share it with my fellow food enthusiasts back home.

Lean Lunch Luxe is a delightful Mediterranean dish that serves one. It’s perfect for those who are watching their calorie intake but don’t want to compromise on flavor or satisfaction. However, it does contain dairy and meat, so it might not be suitable for vegans or vegetarians.

This Healthy Grilled Chicken Salad is a symphony of fresh ingredients: crisp mixed salad greens, juicy cherry tomatoes, crunchy cucumber slices, and thinly sliced red onion. The star of the show is the grilled chicken breast – lean protein that keeps you satiated without weighing you down. A sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese adds a tangy kick while kalamata olives lend a briny depth to the mix. The dressing is simple yet flavorful – extra virgin olive oil mixed with freshly squeezed lemon juice and dried oregano – enhancing the natural flavors of this Easy Feta Cheese Salad.

Making this Low Calorie Mediterranean Meal is as easy as it gets! Start by grilling your chicken breast until it’s slightly charred and fully cooked through – about 5-7 minutes per side should do it. While your chicken cools down, prepare your salad ingredients: halve those cherry tomatoes, slice up your cucumber and red onion, then toss them together with mixed greens in a large salad bowl. Add in your kalamata olives and crumbled feta cheese for that authentic Mediterranean touch! For the dressing, simply combine extra virgin olive oil with freshly squeezed lemon juice (a citrus juicer will come in handy here), dried oregano, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour this over your salad ingredients and give everything a good toss until evenly coated.
