I will probably not surprise anyone with this recipe, but I will still share it anyway. I first read about this recipe, if I count correctly, about 14 years ago. So a very long time ago. I always make gyros salads according to this recipe and I haven’t changed anything in it since I got it.

The basis of my gyros salad is fried chicken breast, which I season with gyros spice, garlic and herbs de Provence. As for the additions with which I combine the fried meat, there are gherkins, onion, sweetcorn, eggs and Chinese cabbage. There are some recipes for Gyros salads that I came across where the salad is flavoured with garlic sauce. I don’t season my salad with it, instead I use mayonnaise and ketchup. I recommend you the following recipe for gyros salad and I hope that you will enjoy it.

Salad with chicken

Good to know when making gyros salad.

Both spicy and mild ketchup work well in this salad. I have gone for spicy ketchup.

Hard-boil the eggs in salted water for 8-9 minutes, depending on their size.

I did not peel the gherkins. After dicing them, I squeezed the excess juice out of them.
