Mediterranean Chicken Salad



I had some feta and tomatoes leftover from my couscous the other day, so I threw this salad together. I loved it! It was light and refreshing and just perfect after Easter dinner and all the Easter candy I have been snacking on. I love the saltiness from the Greek olives, and the bit of tang from the mustard. I think I'll even have some left for lunch tomorrow!
