So my coworkers ordered gyros last week for lunch and we got on the subject of how much we love Greek food. So I thought, why not create a Greek inspired salad that coincides with the 21 Day Fix Extreme nutrition guide? I made a good sized bowl to have for lunch all week.
For a large batch (6-8 servings)
1 can chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
1 chopped bell pepper
1 can artichokes roughly chopped
a handful of quartered cherry tomatoes
2 cucumbers peeled, seeded and chopped
1/2 finely chopped red onion
a handful of sliced kalamata olives (not sure if this is allowed on the 21dfx but I couldn’t make leave them out)
after I have dished up an individual serving I add a sprinkle of feta cheese, a drizzle of EVOO, some lemon juice and pepper to taste. I like it served with a grilled chicken breast on a bed of spinach!
Salad: 1&1/2 green, 1 orange, 1/2 blue
chicken: 1 red
spinach: 1/2 green
