      grilled chicken salad with tzatziki sauce
      1 ounce and 2/3 ounce extra-virgin olive oil
      2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

      combine the oil (1 ounce), lemon juice, oregano, salt (¼ teaspoon), and pepper in a shallow dish; add the chicken.

      refrigerate for 2-3 hours. drain and discard the marinade. grill the chicken until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 160 degrees F and the juices run clear.

      refrigerate until chilled. combine the remaining ingredients, except for lettuce and tomato. process in a blender or food processor until smooth.

      refrigerate until chilled. to serve, julienne the chicken and arrange on a bed of lettuce. place the tomato pieces on top.

      oh yeah! you’ll like it! it really makes an elegant salad and is just sooo good.

      I impressed my ‘upper crust,’ rich in-laws from France with this a gazillion years ago. they eventually decided that I was good enough for their son and then we got divorced! LOL!
