Ingredients

Dressing

1
box (9 oz) Green Giant™ frozen chopped spinach
1
container (5.3 oz) Yoplait® Greek 100 lemon yogurt
2/3
cup fat-free (skim) milk
1/4
cup low-fat salad dressing or mayonnaise
1
teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
3/4
teaspoon dried dill weed

Salad

8
cups bite-size pieces salad greens
2
cups cubed cooked chicken breast
1
pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1
medium cucumber, quartered lengthwise, thinly sliced
1/2
medium red onion, halved, thinly sliced (1 cup)
1
container (3.5 oz) crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (3/4 cup)
1/4
cup pitted kalamata olives, halved

Steps

  • 1 Cook spinach as directed on box. Rinse with cold water until cooled. Drain, squeezing out as much liquid as possible.

  • 4 Spread dressing evenly over salad. Sprinkle with cheese, olives and reserved onion.

Expert Tips

Make it meatless: Substitute 1 can (15 oz) Progresso® chick peas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed, for the chicken.

Add another layer: Sprinkle top of salad with 1/2 cup thinly sliced, drained pepperoncini peppers for a color and flavor boost.
