Favourite Salad

We’ve been trying to eat more veggies around here so last night we made a salad that we haven’t had since the fall.  It is my favourite salad and was inspired by one that someone from our church brought for us shortly after Will was born.  It’s super easy, the dressing is essentially homemade and it is delicious.  Here is how we make it, but obviously you can add or take out anything you want!
Ingredients:
Romaine and Iceberg lettuce
Cherry tomatoes
Mini sweet bell peppers
Cucumber
Rotisserie Chicken
Greek Salad Dressing
We make this with rotisserie chicken.  I don’t quite understand why, but it is cheaper to buy a whole rotisserie chicken at the grocery store that is seasoned and fully cooked than it is to buy an uncooked one.  We get these chickens often and use them in a ton of recipes like soups, salads, and quesadillas.  
For the dressing we use Penzey’s Greek Seasoning.  Never been to Penzey’s?  You MUST go and smell the vanilla extract.  Yum!  Anyway, they have a greek seasoning and on the back is a recipe for salad dressing.  All you need is olive oil, red wine vinegar, water and a little of the seasoning and voi la, delicious homemade dressing.  For the two of us, I make half the recipe and it’s the perfect amount for two large salads.
