Hi there pals!

How is your day going?

I hope well.

& I hope this recipe makes it better!

I have been swooning over this salad recipe for a few months now and figured it was time to finally share it with the world.

It is the perfect meal salad. + GREAT for meal prep! Hello quick & nutritious lunches!

It hits all the elements for a balanced meal meaning your blood sugars will thank you.

It contains fiber, *nutritions* carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats.

It really is just a slam dunk.

Hope you enjoy it! 👀

Looks delicious, right?

  • spring mix

  • chicken, cooked and shredded

  • quinoa, cooked


  • feta

  • red onion

  • pepperoncini peppers

  • cucumber

  • olives

  • tomatoes

for dressing

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • scant 1/3 cup white wine vinegar

  • juice from half a lemon (~1 tablespoon)

  • 1 teaspoon basil

  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add chicken, reduce to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes with lid on.

  2. Prepare your quinoa. 1 cup quinoa to 1 3/4 cups water. Add quinoa and water to a pot, bring to a boil reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes before fluffing with a fork.

  3. While your chicken and quinoa are cooking, prepare your salad dressing. Add all ingredients to a ball jar, top with a lid and shake. Refrigerate until ready to use. Next, prepare your salad toppers - the optionals of your choice.

  4. Once the chicken is done, add it to a mixer with 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil, a couple pinches of salt and a pinch of black pepper. Shred the chicken using a mixer.

  5. Assemble the salad. I like to slice my spring mix into smaller pieces. Add quinoa, chicken and toppers of your choice. Dress with salad dressing.

  6. Serve and enjoy!


  • For one person, I like to use about 2 1/2 - 3 cups spring mix, 1/2 cup quinoa, 1/3 chicken breast.

  • Doubling this dressing recipe is a top notch idea. Perfect to have in the fridge throughout the week. Will keep for 10 days.

  • This is the best meal prep salad. Make a bunch so you have lunches throughout the week. Get tired of a salad, combine it all and toss it in a wrap!

As always, thanks for being here.
