Mediterranean Salad With Grilled Chicken Breasts

"From Pam Riesnberg, Home Appetit, from a cooking class that I took. It was wonderful-there is short marination for the chicken and it is grilled on a stove top in a grill pan and the salad and dressing are easy to assemble. This would be nice for a luncheon or a party."

    Delicious!!! I made this tonight. I only made half of the dressing & that was plenty. The dressing had such a nice lemony flavor. It was also pretty easy to make, which is always a plus. This is definitely a keeper since it is one of only a few recipes that the whole family likes.

    This was a lovely salad, packed with flavor. I especially loved the dressing and will definitely be making that as a staple to have in my refrigerator. Yum! The chicken had a great flavor, too, due to the lemon & cumin. This served as a wonderful, fairly quick, weeknight meal for a family of 4. Thank you!!

    Mmmm, lemony! Even the chicken was lemony hot off the grill! I did appreciate a dressing without garlic since I make my salads in the morning to take to work to eat at night and fresh garlic has too much bite after sitting that long for me. A little of the dressing goes a long way, so you should have leftovers for tomorrow. I also added shredded radish for no reason. Thanks for posting.

    This is a keeper! I used the thin sliced chicken breasts, so I didn't need to pound them. The dressing is to die for! A big hit with my family. Thanks for sharing.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
