You may have had someone in your family prepare what they might have called a Greek Salad, but you haven’t truly had a Greek salad until you have tried one prepared authentically. Filled with a mix of delightful garden vegetables-romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions-and with a generous sprinkling of Feta cheese on top, it provides a combination of flavors that will melt in your mouth. To complete the mix, the salad includes Kalamata olives and oregano, and finally topped with a homemade Greek dressing. It’s truly refreshing and nourishing.
Deliciously marinated strips of chicken are charbroiled with a fabulous garlic sauce, topped with tomatoes, and of course rolled in pita bread to make that “perfect sandwich.” While it may seem like a simple dish, there is something special about the garlic sauce that brings out rich flavors and the marinated chicken simply delights all your taste-buds. This is the perfect protein pick-me-up for a busy day.
You have probably tried all types of hummus from the supermarket, but believe us when we say that there is nothing as delicious nor as healthy as eating a freshly made hummus topped with the meat of your choosing. Can any dish get better than that? It’s the perfect meal for someone who is trying to up their protein intake yet so tasty, you will hardly even realize that you are eating very healthy food. Hummus is typically made from garbanzo, beans tahini, blended with fresh garlic, lemon, and olive oil. It is truly a delight to the taste buds.
