Recipe: Greek Salad with Spicy Grilled Chicken

Once upon a time, I spent a summer in Greece. By the time I left, Greek salads were a staple in my diet. This recipe makes a twist on the classic, by omitting the feta (you’re welcome, my lactose intolerant friends), and adding scrumptious spicy grilled chicken. As the Greeks would say, Καλή όρεξη!
