Greek Salad Power Bowls – Tons of protein and fresh Greek flavors make this recipe a perfect one dish meal or make ahead lunch.
My favorite Greek Salad got a little extra punch of protein with the addition of quinoa! Although I’ve never been a huge salad eater, Greek salads are totally my style. This combination of flavors is by far my favorite way to eat salad. And with the addition of whole grain quinoa, this recipe is a complete meal and super satisfying.
There are tons of options with this recipe. Combine it all together in one big fat Greek salad or portion out individual servings for lunch all week long. I’ve included my recipe for Greek Lemon Chicken, which is super tasty and adds some nice tangy flavor. Or, if you’re looking to save time, use rotisserie or plain grilled chicken instead. To make this Paleo, just skip the quinoa and feta cheese.
For the dressing, I recommend the Primal Kitchens Greek Vinaigrette found at Thrive Market.
