Healthy Chopped Greek Salad

February 3, 2015

Uncategorized

If you are looking to spice up your boring salad or add some life to your New Year’s eating plan, try this salad.

It’s 100% fresh, healthy vegetables that pack a ton of flavor and will brighten up any meal.  You can serve it on lettuce or dig in with a fork or a pita chip!

For a simple weeknight meal, I added some greek marinated chicken (recipe to come) and homemade tzatziki sauce and served it with whole grain tabouli.
