Delicious Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Salad



Hey Dads,


Here is an easy and unbelievably delicious healthy meal option for lunch or dinner. While traveling in Greece and Turkey, I fell in love with zesty lemon dressings over Mediterranean Salads. Turns out it's also very healthy for you! Non-Red meat like chicken, turkey, and fish are all great options to keep this meal heart-healthy. But if you want to go all out with a steak and salad meal, then just omit the chicken and enjoy!
