Mediterranean Power Salad

When I get in the mood for these fresh mediterranean flavors... there's nothing better in the world. So healthy and vibrant and HUGE. I like a salad as big as my lap thanks.

For the Lentils

  • 1/2 cup lentils I get the steamed lentils from Trader Joes
  • 2 tbs pre-made bruschetta I use the fresh from Trader Joes
  • 1 oz fat free feta I get mine at Trader Joes. Excuse the broken record. Reduced fat or full fat will of course be great too!


  • Butter lettuce chopped (100 grams) (For me the butter lettuce is KEY. So delicate and fresh and NEVER bitter.)
  • Cucumbers chopped (60 g)
  • Cherry tomatoes chopped (60 g)
  • Red onion diced (35 g)
  • Bell pepper diced (35 g)
  • 105 g pre-cooked chicken breast of your choice I used rotisserie chicken breast.
  • Large pinch of chopped fresh mint
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 oz 28 g favorite hummus (This was Black Garlic by Hope for only 2 fat/serving. I'm always just looking for hummus with the lowest fat since they can vary a lot.)
  • 2 tbs 30 g Tzatziki (make your own if you're an overachiever! I went lazy and used Trader Joes.)
  • A lemon for squeezing


For the Lentils

  • Combine lentils, bruschetta, and feta- add a squeeze of lemon because why not! This is a classic and delicious Trader Joes dip. So good with pita chips! But also good thrown in this salad! Full of so much flavor.

For the Salad

  • Heat a skillet over high heat. Spray with cooking spray and add shredded chicken. Sprinkle with a good pinch of kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano. Let it brown for just a minute then give it a good stir/toss and remove from heat. Quick is key.
  • Fill your bowl with chopped butter lettuce and start topping with all of your veggies, chicken, a dollop of hummus, a good HEAVY sprinkle of fresh mint.
  • Drizzle with Tzatziki and squeeze liberally with fresh lemon. Make sure to salt and pepper, especially your tomatoes and cucumbers.
  • Toss and enjoy! Even better with a pita on the side or some crushed pita chips tossed in like croutons!


*If you need more dressing, squeeze more lemon, or of course add more tzatziki... or Bolthouse cucumber ranch works great. (Although personally I prefer their regular ranch.) I find them at almost any normal grocery store in the refrigerated section.
