This Mediterranean inspired meal combines healthy and tasty into a single delicious bowl. This salad breaks away from the potato salad rut keeping the dressing light and citrusy and vegetables abundant. Marinating the chicken with the lemon juice, garlic and oregano gives it a fresh acidic taste while keeping it juicy. This is a great meal to use for meal prep as you can make a large quantity of chicken and potatoes to combine with the salad throughout the week, just make sure to leave out the spring mix until right before mealtime.
