Trying to Eat Lean-Greek Grilled Chicken Salad With Greek Yogurt Dressing

I’m on my ever present venture to try and eat lean. When I make a lean meal that I love, it ends up in my regular dinner rotation. We all know that a regular dinner rotation can become a bit stale.  When that happens, I like to reinvent those meals that I love so much to add a little variety. What’s the saying…variety is the spice of life!

My most popular post to date is my recipe for Easy Greek Grilled Chicken Pitas with Tzatziki Sauce.

Homemade Greek Yogurt Dressing

I love this meal! It’s so vibrant and delicious! This would be a great way to use up those summer time garden veggies! I like to set out my salad ingredients like a salad bar. That lets everyone pick out exactly what they want in their salad. I also store the salad dressing in Mason Jars in the fridge. It makes mixing a breeze when I eat some leftover salad for lunch the next day. Just give the jar a really good shake!
