Cool and Fresh: Greek Chicken Salad and Ingredients, Inc. T-Shirt Give-Away

August 01, 2010


We have been eating a lot of cold dishes lately since it is beyond hot here in Alabama. I love trying new versions of chicken salad, and this Greek Chicken Salad is so easy and so flavorful. I used rotisserie chicken to make this recipe even easier. Serve on lettuce leaves or in a pita for a really simple main-dish.

T-Shirt Giveaway:

Enter for a chance to win an Ingredients, Inc. T-shirt by leaving a comment below telling me what’s your favorite cold-main dish and/or your favorite grilled cheese sandwich. I will select a random winner on Wednesday August 4th.

What a delicious looking chicken salad. My favorite cold dish is the Sassy Scotty chicken salad from The Chicken Salad Chick in Auburn. It's not very healthy so I have to limit myself but I love it. I'm not a big fan of grilled cheese though.

I love grilled chicken salads. Eat them for dinner at least once per week. Can't wait to try this one. Mmm...grilled cheese...American w/ tomato slices.

My favorite cold dish is my wife's chicken salad sandwiches on croissants. I love the creamy, chunky chicken w/ the crunch of the celery and the sweetness of the grapes. Usually it's accompanied w/ a tomato and cuke salad. I think I like it so much because it was first served to me as a surprise picnic at a James Taylor concert. Whenever she plans something that is in any way outdoorsy, she mixes up a batch.

Fav grilled cheese: this one is easy!!! Here is how I build it: 2 slices 100% whole grain seeded wheat bread from publix (without a doubt the best store-bought bread in my area), 1 thin slice homegrown tomatoe, 1 icecream scoop of my "secret" pimento cheese(grated extra sharp cheddar and white cheddar-equal parts,chopped pimentoes, toasted and chopped pecans, a bit of grated onion,jalepeno and a dollop of mayo and cream cheese-all combined by hand. Spread half of cheese mix on one side, sandwich in the tomatoe and follow with the remainder on the other bread slice. Spray with olive oil pam and grill, panini style. OMG DEEElish!First time I have ever given out this pimento cheese recipe but you deserve it, Allison!

My favorite go-to recipe is a salad. But not just any salad. The lettuce must be romaine. The sunflower seeds must be roasted and the dressing must be Ceasar. Any other additions are optional, but it is good just like that. I'm excited to be entered in your contest!

I love your recipe for this Greek Salad! One of my favorites is a huge chopped Cobb salad loaded with grilled chicken, crispy bacon, sliced boiled eggs, chopped tomato, crumbled blue cheese and ripe avocado. Pure perfection!

My favorite summer dish is cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions and feta, sprinkled with red wine vinegar. Some days that's dinner!

Fav cold main dish: thai chicken salad made with cellophane noodles, ginger and cilantro (published on my own Facebook Page called Meri's cafe. Allison, you can request to be my facebook friend and find the recipe! I made your pork w/ peach salsa last night for 6 in my neighborhood. Paired it with: your boursin-tomato bites for app, corn custard, roasted asparagus and fennel, and finally frozen lemon-pecan meringue pie. It was a great menu and I will use it again in the mountains of Highland, NC next weekend! I really want your t-shirt AND your cookbook. PLEASE keep up the great work!

My 13 year old aspiring chef daughter has perfected Summer Pasta.. tomatoes and basil from the garden with fresh mozzarella, olive oil, garlic, and penne pasta. She makes it constantly and it is heaven!

I love a good salad topped with grilled chicken on top. Throw some celery, feta and fresh strawberries on it and I am in Heaven. Wished I lived in your house so I could try all of these recipes!! I would love to be a taste tester.

You hit upon my favorite cold summer dish -- a Greek salad! When I have stuffed grape leaves on hand, I love to make a 'platter' with the salad, add warm pita bread for dipping/scooping, black olives, hard-boiled egg, and cheese chunks too. Of course, if we have hummus or falafel, that makes it perfect!
