"This is an easy recipe that can be prepared ahead of time. Great for those hot summer days! Also good with a herb and garlic dressing, or a Caesar type dressing. If preparing ahead of time, mix all together just before serving." — Spaggie

1 1/2 pounds
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into strips
crumbled feta cheese
roma (plum) tomato, diced
Italian-style salad dressing
We really enjoyed this one. I used sweet grape tomatoes, cut in halves, instead of the plum tomatoes (for a sweeter taste) and used Vadilia onion dressing instead of Italian. The feta cheese is a nice touch and my whole family loved it. A nice, sweet tasting pasta salad. Thanks Spaggie!
Very ordinary, not a recipe Id repeat,
I thought this was delicious. I also used a little fresh squeezed lemon on the chicken, and it gave it a little more flavor. Very good!
I marinated my chicken for about an hour and then grilled it. I also finely minced about 1/4 cup of sweet onion and about half of a sweet red pepper. I also tossed in a few sliced baby portobellos I had left over, plus a couple of extra splashed of dressing for the added veggie volume.
Thank goodness for the Italian dressing, or this salad wouldn't have had much taste. I do agree -- the feta cheese was a nice touch. And it is a good, quick recipe for those hot summer nights. But next time I may season the chicken strips differently (maybe with more kick, like cajun spices?).
We all loved this salad. Next time I'm going to add artichoke hearts and olives. Yummmmmmm.
I love this recipe, its good cold or hot and I like to add olives as well. Great summer dinner
I tried something a little different with this. I am on a low-fat diet, so I used 2 tablespoons of Italian Pesto salad dressing(instead of the feta cheese) and then 1/4 cup of fat-free Italian dressing. I also added garlic powder, red pepper flakes, black pepper and basil to the pasta. The recipe tasted great even without the feta and parmesan cheese.
