Feta Berry Salad

It is very hard to get excited about a salad. However, I think this Fetaberry Salad may be an exception. This salad is almost too beautiful to eat and if the colors and presentation alone do not get you excited, the flavors certainly will. With the combination of the salty feta, the sweet fruit and the twist of the chili powder will leave you wanting more. This is my favorite salad ever so when putting together the collection for my cookbook, you know this had to be one of the recipes. This is just one of the many great recipes that will be featured in Making it Delicious.


serves 2


Ingredients:

Avocado oil 2 tablespoons

Thin sliced chicken 2 - 4 breasts

Kosher salt to taste

Black pepper to taste

Leafy greens, chopped 1/2 thick 1 heart

English cucumber, peeled, quartered 1 1/2 cup sliced

Red or yellow bell pepper, chopped 1 each

Strawberries, chopped 1 cup

Feta cheese crumbles 1/4 - 1/2 cup

Lets Get Cooking:

  • Start by preparing the Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing and set aside.

  • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides, then in a large non stick skillet pan, heat the avocado oil over a medium high heat and carefully place the breasts into the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. Transfer to a cutting board or plate.

  • Prepare all the fruits and vegetables as listed starting with the leafy lettuce. Separate on 2 plates and then layer the rest of the ingredients as you prepare them.

  • Sprinkle with the desired amount of feta cheese, a little black pepper and oregano.

  • Slice the chicken breasts and top off the salads, then drizzle with as much dressing as desired.
