Why You’ll Love this Mediterranean Chicken Salad Recipe

This easy salad comes together quickly and is full of delicious ingredients. It also makes 8 servings – so it’s a great meal prep recipe or a dish to bring to a potluck or party.

An easy trick for an outstanding salad is to finely chop all your ingredients after you combine them. It makes each bite flavorful because you taste all the ingredients. It takes a little longer to assemble on the front end, but I guarantee it’s worth it! This salad, with so many ingredients, really benefits from this treatment.


What You’ll Need to Make this Salad

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded
  • 1 (14 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14 ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large cucumber, finely chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 cup olives (I used kalamata and picholine), diced
  • 1 (14 ounce) can artichokes, drained and rinsed
  • 10 ounces mixed greens, roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • juice of 2 lemons

How to Make An Easy Mediterranean Salad

  • Combine all the ingredients from chicken to mixed greens in a large bowl and toss to combine.
  • In a small bowl, combine the salt and pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice. Whisk briskly to combine.
  • Before serving, top the salad with the dressing and stir or toss several times to mix.
