Greek Chicken Salad

Yield: about 4 servings


1½ cups cooked chicken, coarsely chopped or shredded

½ cup cucumber, diced

¾ cup tomatoes, seeded and diced

1/3 cup red onion, finely chopped

2-3 tbsp. sliced black olives (or Kalamata olives)

1 cup tzatziki sauce*

Salt and pepper, to taste

Pita, for serving

Crumbled feta cheese


Combine the chicken, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, olives and tzatziki sauce in a medium bowl.  Stir well to combine.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Serve as desired over pita bread, topped with crumbled feta cheese.  

*Note: Readers frequently ask if they can use Greek yogurt rather than buying plain yogurt and straining it.  You absolutely can do that, but I prefer to strain my own yogurt because it is simply much cheaper than buying an equal amount of Greek yogurt.
