Mediterranean Chicken and Artichoke Salad

chicken artichoke salad-2

This is a favorite summertime salad. Bright, fresh, and light, the mix falls between a chicken and a pasta salad, only without the mayo or the pasta. Whenever I make it, I’m reminded how satisfying it is to eat a dish full of so many different tastes: garlic, feta, artichokes, and olives. It’s so easy because, shhh, all you need is a rotisserie chicken.

This is the kind of thing you’d be happy to serve at a cookout as a lighter alternative to traditional summer salads and not feel like you’re lacking fun and flavor.

    Hello! You are wonderful and inspiring. I bought my first cooling rack (today) because of you! I know…so silly. QUESTION: You often have chicken recipes that don’t show what you do to the chicken, for instance, your buffalo chicken egg rolls. Do you bake the chicken for those…boil? I seem to be confused about the most basic things in the kitchen.

    Yum! I need to make this for lunches in the summer, it sounds delish! If I was making ahead of time would I add the dressing at the very end though? Or is the spinach supposed to be kinda wilty? Either way, the flavors here are great and I love anything with olives.

    Yet again, I am so jealous of your adventures, lady! :)

    This was an amazing recipe and was fun to make. I used marinated artichokes and garlic stuffed green olives and I think it added an extra kick to it. I rate this as a 5 star for sure.
