Greek Chicken Salad with Cucumber Dressing

I found this recipe for Greek Chicken Salad with Cucumber Dressing from my local grocery store’s free magazine. It seemed like something I could easily make for one person. I must admit I did go out and buy skewers because of this, but I figured I would use the skewers more than once anyway. I have the space, so I’m thinking about investing in an outdoor grill. Might be a good time because grills are going clearance soon.

Greek Chicken Salad with Cucumber Dressing

This is chicken marinated for 30 minutes then either grilled or broiled. You make a quick cucumber yogurt sauce and serve on lettuce. I hate iceberg lettuce because there’s no flavor and no nutrients, so I served it on spinach. This recipe is pretty easy I think. It takes a little time mainly because of marinating the chicken, but you could probably marinade ahead of time and freeze it. The dressing takes a few minutes to chop and mix. Any leftover dressing you can use for future salads.
