Get on the Salad Boat

Sorry for having such a long time between posts!  I feel like I've been constantly running around the past few days without a free moment. I did have time to make this though!  A healthy, quick and easy dinner that took only about 15 minutes to make.  Even Jay had his doubts and he said it was delicious.



Mediterranean Salad Boats
  • 3/4 cup diced rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup green & black olives
  • 6 canned artichoke quarters
  • 1/2 can hearts of palm
  • 1/2 small cucumber
  • 8 large romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup light balsamic vinaigrette
  • Cheese of your choice, to taste ( I love Feta)
Dice up the chicken, olives, artichoke, hearts of palm, and cucumber.  Place in a bowl and toss with the salad dressing (I put my cucumbers on the side because I hate cucumbers but Jay loves them).  Then separate and rinse the lettuce leaves, and portion out some cheese for the topping.  Assemble just like a taco and enjoy!  Serves 2 people.




If you are a Publix shopper, I highly recommend NOT getting their reduced fat feta cheese.  It was bland and had a cheddar-like texture.  Athenos reduced fat feta is awesome, but they ran out of it, booooo.  The shredded cheddar was way better on these!  Also, you can use whatever fresh veggies you like!  Tomatoes, peppers...those would all be great in this too.  Plus, it's a surprisingly filling meal.  But I did have a couple Dove dark chocolate promises afterwards (shhhh...dont tell).

Anything served in a boat is okay in my book!

I loooove feta. It's one of my all time favorite foods! I've never had the reduced fat kind- I buy the regular Athenos from Costco :)

That salad looks great! Then again, anything with olives and artichokes is great :-)

Anything is improved by adding feta!
