For the Lentils
1/2cuplentilsI get the steamed lentils from Trader Joes
2tbspre-made bruschettaI use the fresh from Trader Joes
1ozfat free fetaI get mine at Trader Joes. Excuse the broken record. Reduced fat or full fat will of course be great too!
Butter lettucechopped (100 grams) (For me the butter lettuce is KEY. So delicate and fresh and NEVER bitter.)
Cucumberschopped (60 g)
Cherry tomatoeschopped (60 g)
Red oniondiced (35 g)
Bell pepperdiced (35 g)
105gpre-cooked chicken breast of your choiceI used rotisserie chicken breast.
Large pinch of chopped fresh mint
Salt and pepper
1oz28 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.)
2tbs30 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.For easy logging, if you make this just like mine you can search "Lillie Eats and Tells Mediterranean Power Salad" in My Fitness Pal.
