Baby, it’s a heat wave! If I’m being entirely honest, I can’t say I’m loving this weather. It’s insanely hot outside to the point that I’m covered in sweat after a minute of being outside. I’ve never been a heat lover. Give me 17°C weather instead, please.

Because of the crazy heat, I’ve been avoiding the oven all week. My daughter made pizza the other night in the oven and it brought my house up 2 degrees. Ugh. My air conditioning is working hard enough and doesn’t need the added heat in the house.

    So instead of using the oven to cook meals, I’ve been finding alternatives. This mouthwatering Greek Chicken Salad is perfect for those hot summer days. It’s fresh, delicious and simple to whip up. It’s also large enough to feed a group of people. Olivia frequently has friends over and they are always hungry.

    You might be thinking, but don’t you have to cook the chicken in this salad? Yes, you do, but I have a tip. Use either leftover chicken OR buy a prepared rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. Let them heat things up instead!

    Tip: Use the Shopping with Chicken app to plan your grocery list. It will save you loads of time!

    What’s great about this easy salad recipe is that it’s ginormous. You’ll either have lots of leftovers so you can outlast the heat wave or you can feed a crowd. Either way, it’s a win-win.

    Tip: Look for Canadian chicken when you are shopping. Chicken raised in Canada follows nationally-set, mandatory food safety and animal care standards. To be 100% sure the chicken you are buying is Canadian, look for the “Raised by a Canadian Farmer” mark on the packaging.

    How to Make Greek Chicken Salad

    It doesn’t take long, but it involves lots of chopping. Grab the biggest salad bowl you own and add all your prepped ingredients. This salad is made with romaine lettuce, chicken, cherry tomatoes, English cucumbers, Feta cheese, black olives, red onion and green pepper.

    The dressing is also easy to whip up. In small bowl, add extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, minced garlic cloves, dried oregano, salt and pepper. Whisk together until the oil and vinegar is emulsified. Pour over the salad and toss together to cover.

    The Chicken Farmers of Canada has a variety of salad recipes to choose from when you are craving a lighter meal. Try Arugula, Citrus & Chicken Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette or Chicken Avocado and Black Bean Salad. Yum!
