A new twist on popular Greek salad: layered ingredients topped with a spinach and yogurt dressing--rich in veggie goodness!

Ingredients

Dressing

1
box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach
1
container (5.3 oz) Yoplait® Greek 100 protein 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.
  • 2 In food processor, place spinach and remaining Dressing ingredients. (Do not use blender.) Cover; process 1 to 2 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape sides, until smooth.
  • 3 In very large (5-quart) glass bowl, place about half of the salad greens. Layer with chicken, tomatoes and cucumber. Reserve 1/4 cup onion for topping; layer remaining onion over the cucumber. Top with remaining greens.
  • 4 Spread dressing evenly over salad. Sprinkle with cheese, olives and reserved onion.
  • 5 Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight. Just before serving, toss salad to coat with dressing.

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.
