Mediterranean Veggie Salad
Remember that Mediterranean Chicken Salad with the marinade that doubles as dressing? This recipe uses that same dressing and is SO easy to make! It is a great dish for Low Macro day (all my FASTer Way to Fat Loss® peeps know what I am referring to here!) or really any day you are looking for something refreshing and tasty.
This recipe is full of Mediterranean flavors like artichokes, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, lemon, goat cheese and chickpeas. If you are a fan of olives (which I am NOT) you could add them here too. As I am writing this, I think some pepperoncini would really escalade the tastiness of this dish! I am doing that next time! Be sure to top with mint or basil...you will thank me.
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
