Greek Salad – 21DFX approved

image

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)

combine:

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
