Crunchy Mediterranean Wedge Salad
The wedge goes Mediterranean!
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) Greek Rub
- 2 small vine-ripened tomatoes
- 1/4 seedless cucumber
- 1/2 small red onion
- 2 heads iceberg lettuce
- 4 oz (125 g) feta cheese
- Sliced kalamata olives and Crunchy Pita Strips (optional, see Cook’s Tip)
- 2-3 lemons
- 1/3 cup (75 mL) canola oil
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) Greek Rub
- 3/4 tsp (4 mL) sugar
Microwave chicken on HIGH 5-6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF (74ºC). Set aside to cool.
Remove outer leaves of each head of lettuce. (Do not core heads of lettuce.) Using Chef’s Knife, cut each head of lettuce lengthwise into three 1½-inch-thick (4-cm) slices; arrange slices on Large Bamboo Platter.
To assemble salad, crumble feta with Easy Release Cheese Crumbler. Top each lettuce slice with chicken, vegetables, feta and olives, if desired. Drizzle with dressing and top with Crunchy Pita Strips, if desired.
