This healthy dinner salad recipe with cucumber, feta, basil and olives has edamame added for extra protein. Serve with toasted pita brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with oregano.

Ingredients

  • 1 8-ounce boneless skinless chicken breast, trimmed
  • ¼ cup red-wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 8 ounces frozen shelled edamame (about 1 1/2 cups), thawed
  • 8 cups chopped romaine (about 2 romaine hearts)
  • 1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • ½ European cucumber, sliced
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup slivered fresh basil
  • ¼ cup sliced Kalamata olives
  • ¼ cup slivered red onion

Instructions

  1. Place chicken in a medium saucepan and add water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the chicken registers 165°F, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let cool for 5 minutes; shred or chop into bite-size pieces.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add edamame, romaine, tomatoes, cucumber, feta, basil, olives, onion and the chicken; toss to coat.
