Now that it's officially spring, I find myself craving salads more often. I used to eat the same salad every day but now that I prepare them for my husband too, I try to keep it as exciting as possible. One of our favorite salads is, without a doubt, this loaded Greek chicken salad. Stuffed with tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, artichoke hearts, and a juicy Greek marinated chicken, this salad has it all. Plus the sun-dried tomato herb vinaigrette doesn't hurt either! Prepare all the of the ingredients beforehand and you can meal prep this salad to last you through the week.
