Pita chips add crunch to a delicious salad

Salad doesn't have to be a boring side dish of tomatoes and lettuce, add some feta cheese and pita chips and you've got a delicious entrée the whole family will love.

Sometimes I'm not in the mood to cook—it's too hot or I don't have the time, or sometimes I don't even want to turn on the stove. These are the times when I throw together a quick salad. It's delicious, it's easy, and on a hot day, there's nothing more satisfying.

Sometimes my salads are just tomatoes, greens, and whatever other vegetables I have in the refrigerator, but sometimes the veggies aren't enough. That's when I grill up a piece of chicken and add some feta cheese. Those are the salads that thrill everyone, especially me.

Grilled Chicken & Pita Salad

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped, fresh oregano
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1, 5-ounce bag loose leaf arugula
  • 1 cup chopped heirloom tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 cup pita chips

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the first 4 ingredients (through the oregano) and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a grill pan over high heat; add chicken breasts and cook until no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 8 minutes; place breasts on a cutting board and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
