I love when my food is full of color. If you're like me (a visual eater) than you will LOVE what I've got on the menu today: GRILLED CHICKEN GREEK SALAD.

After our move, Wade and I quickly learned that there are ZERO truly greek restaurants in the Rio Grande Valley. The ones that claim to be greek use Italian dressing on their Greek Salad. Enough said.

It's Day 3 of Recipe Week here at Life On a Mission. If you're just joining in, make sure you go back and check out my Healthy Chicken Stirfry & Turkey Burger on a Portobello Bun. YUM.

Living our lives on a mission is all about knowing and glorifying God, serving others, and living our lives, well, on a mission to make the most of Him! 

For me, that includes what and how I eat, and often who I eat with. The table is a place for community. Maybe you need a little "me" time. Make yourself a delicious meal and sit-down without the TV!  Feed your family, your friends, your neighbors.

I want to treat this body God gave me with respect. One of the ways I look to do that is through food. Trust me, this is not always the case (french fries are my weakness!.. ok food in general, especially the kind that comes from restaurants, is my weakness) but when I focus on putting good things in, I feel so much better and have more energy to pour myself out to others. 

Plus, it tastes REALLY REALLY GOOD.


WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Your favorite salad mix (I like to toss Spring Mix and a little Garden Iceburg together for color and texture)
Boneless, Skinless Chicken tenderloins
Tomato, chopped
Cucumber, chopped
Red Onion, chopped
Sliced Greek pepperocini (from a jar)
Crumbled Feta cheese
Black Olives
Your favorite greek dressing
OR mix the following:
1/2 cup olive oil
6 TBLS red wine vinegar
3 TBLS dried oregano
2 tsp salt

Also picture: Naan. Find it in the bakery of your local grocery story. Sprinkle with a little water and warm in the oven for a few minutes. It's our favorite thing we ate in India and thought it'd be ok to mix the cultures just this once ;)

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Heat your grill over medium heat.
2. Rub chicken with olive oil and season with pepper and a little salt. Grill chicken until the middle is white.
3. Combine ingredients, toss and enjoy! Don't you love how simple salads can be?

Up tomorrow: Salmon & Eggs. Seriously, try it. Your taste buds will thank you.
