While there's no stated minimum for servings of protein I know of, I think if you don't get enough, you're setting yourself up for hunger. Adequate protein will help you stay full as well as getting proper nutrition. You can also get protein from milk and yogurt (Greek yogurt is highest in protein) and from the daily nut servings, as well as beans. Some find if they eat a lot of cheese servings that their weight loss is slower (due to the higher fat content). Just using one serving of feta on your salad will probably not be filling enough. Do you like beans? Cottage cheese? Boiled or deviled eggs are also great in a salad.
Sounds like a plan. I take the foil packs of tuna or salmon (3 oz. I think) to work and top my salad with them. I also add kidney beans or a piece of cheese or a boiled egg to that and I'm full for hours afterwards.
