Healthy Chopped Greek Salad

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.
