A simple and delicious chicken salad with feta cheese.. for added flavours you can use fresh herbs, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and diced celery. The salad is quite filling and makes a light meal by itself. Remember that feta cheese is quite salty and add salt accordingly.
Chicken ... 2 cups (boiled and shredded)
Bell pepper .. 1 (use any colour - sliced)
Cherry tomatoes ...... 10
Celery .................... 1/2 cup (diced)
Red onion ............. 1 small (sliced)
Fresh oregano or any other herb...... 1 tbsps (finely chopped)
Mayonnaise ..........3- 4 tbsps
Sour cream .......... 2 tbsps (optional)
Feta cheese ......... 2-3 tbsps (crumbled)
Olive oil ............. 2 tbsps
Salt .............. to taste
Black pepper ... for seasoning
Baby lettuce or any lettuce available .. for lining the plate.
1. Boil the chicken adding a little salt. Shred it into strips or cut with a sharp knife.
2. Wash, de-seed the bell pepper and cut into strips. Slice the onion. Cut the cherry tomatoes into halves saving few for garnishing. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and black pepper. Add salt carefully as the feta cheese is very salty.
3. Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves.Garnish with cherry tomatoes. Refrigerate it until you serve as chilled salad tastes better.
