Notes

Substitutions

Can use store-bought dressing - Making greek dressing homemade is the best way to control that no added sugars sneak in. Primal Kitchen has a delicious keto greek dressing. If you’re not concerned about keto then any Greek or oil and vinegar dressing will pair nicely with this Greek salad. 
Add sweetener to homemade dressing - the homemade Greek dressing I’m sharing  does not include any sweetener. This makes it more on the tangy side. If you prefer to add a little sweetness you can whisk in some monk fruit, honey, or pure maple syrup. Typically, I’ll add 1-2 teaspoons of honey to balance out the vinegar in the dressing.
Add onions - onions aren’t considered keto-friendly because they are higher in carbs. 
However, red onion is a great addition to a classic greek salad so if you’re not concerned about carbs then add a few into the salad.
Add bell peppers or other vegetables. Bell peppers are not typically found in a Greek salad but if you need to add some extra bulk then throw in some chopped bell peppers.
Leave the chicken out to make it vegan. If you prefer a vegan greek salad then simply leave out the chicken. In this case, I’d recommend adding in extra vegetables or chickpeas (if not keto) to bulk up the protein of this salad.
Use a rotisserie chicken. When you don’t feel like cooking then grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Use about ¼ cup of shredded chicken per salad.
