The salad component of the Greek Chicken Bowl is a colorful mix of vegetables and cheese, with a variety of textures and flavors to keep you interested. Baby spinach serves as a tender and nutritious base, while the diced English cucumber and Roma tomatoes add crunch and freshness. The crumbled feta cheese brings a creamy and salty element that pairs wonderfully with the acidity of the Greek vinaigrette. Marinated artichoke hearts provide a tangy contrast, and Kalamata olives add a burst of briny flavor. For those who enjoy a bit of extra spice, the addition of small pepperoni is an excellent choice. It also bumps up the protein in this dish significantly too!
One of the great aspects of this recipe how flexible it is. You can easily customize the salad ingredients based on personal preference or what you have on hand. The optional Greek Freak seasoning blend is a fantastic addition for those who enjoy bold flavors, but the salad is just as awesome without it. Just toss in a little extra bottled Greek dressing. You can also adapt this dish to accommodate dietary restrictions or preferences, such as omitting the cheese for a dairy-free version.
