Greek Chicken Cucumber Salad - Oregon Valley Farm

Greek Chicken Cucumber Salad

Greek Chicken Cucumber Salad from Oregon Valley Farm

Here’s a super tasty, easy meal that is PERFECT for a hot summer day! You can either make the chicken as directed below or precook a whole chicken and use the shredded meat instead with the marinade as a sauce.

This dish is light and yet filling at the same time! It’s cool and crisp with the cucumbers and tomatoes and the zesty marinade and tzatziki sauce add wonderful flavor.

This recipe is keto/low carb as is! You can add some riced cauliflower if you want a little extra while still keeping it keto/low carb.
