Ingredients Needed To Make Greek Salad

To make this healthy greek salad, these are the ingredients you will need:

  • Lettuce
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Long English cucumber
  • Chopped cooked chicken
  • Red onion
  • Pitted black olives
  • Crumbled feta cheese

How To Make Homemade Greek Salad Dressing

For this specific salad recipe, I decided to quickly put together my own salad dressing!

To do this yourself, you will need 3 ingredients:

That’s all!

Add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and Italian seasoning in a cup and whisk it with a fork to make a dressing. You can store this dressing in a container in the fridge until you are ready to use it.

It’s also simple enough that you can make it in the moment if you wanted to.

How To Meal Prep Greek Chicken Salad In Mason Jars

Now it’s time to meal prep the mason jars with the greek salad!

To do this, there is a proper way of layering the ingredients to make sure you still maintain the freshness and the crunch of the salad.

You don’t want to just throw it all in there and call it a day!

The first layer is the salad dressing followed by the cherry tomatoes. With the tomatoes touching the dressing, it actually allows the tomatoes to marinate in it a little bit and just give it even more flavor.

After the tomatoes, layer in the sliced cucumber and red onions.

The next layer after the veggies is the chopped chicken! I usually like to just cook up a few pieces of seasoned boneless chicken thighs in the air fryer beforehand and chop it up to add to this Greek salad.

After the chicken, add in the black olives and feta cheese (my favorite!).

Finally, top off the mason jar salad with lettuce and you are all done!

How To Store And Serve Mason Jar Salads

Close the mason jars and refrigerate for up to 5 days. I don’t recommend going past 5 days as the salad might not be as fresh.

Before serving, put the mason jar upside down and give it a good shake so the dressing coats the whole salad. Pour it into a bowl and enjoy!

    We love take-along salads, & a Greek Salad is one of my favorites. I also love an authentic Italian Salad – but no surprise, b/c I’m half Italian & half Greek! One thing I must point out is that Greeks use Kalamata olives not black olives, Red Wine Viinegar not Balsamic, & Oregano not Italian seasining in Greek Salad. Please note that I’m NOT criticizing your recipe, since the ingredients work well together & make a very tasty salad, but I only wanted to clarify these ‘specific’ ingredients which Greeks always use…Kalamata Olives, Red Wine Vinegar, & Oregano. That being said, I love your choice of recipes & have made and enjoyed very many, several of which are in my monthly rotation. Thank you, great job :-)
